Tremendous idea!

Quote:-take row from db which is a page of text.
- this text was placed in their from a form textarea.
- I then use nl2br, then format text to paragraphs using a function I created below.

Try not to fall into the trap of describing how to do something .. when you're asking the question of how to do something. Describe outcomes!

Quote:- I then want to split the html into 2 equal parts so that I can have 2 equal columns on a webpage like in a newspaper.

I feel we're getting close! Wink

How about this algorithm:

Calculate length of the string.
Identify mid-point.
Search forward from that mid-point until you hit a space.
Split the string at that position.
