Or PHP replace...
Or there is a PHP function that automatically does this.
Hope this helps.
you can also use <pre></pre> for displaying preformatted text. then you could also add some nice css to stop it from looking too out of place.

I forgot about that.
I have never actually used the <pre> tag before, even though I know what it does. Guess thats just me :D
