just in case it helps the diagnosis, a recent email to ynnen had the line breaks stripped out, but when he responded they reappeared in the quote.

What browser are you using?

The characters that are getting put into the database are linefeeds and not carriage returns.

i think i've figured it out.

if it should happen to you, check view> character encoding> western (iso-8859-1). perhaps the site was recently mapped to a different character set?
