Yes, you are correct.
To be honest, I am by no means an expert in php yet, but trying.
I had input the paragraphs as a whole into a VARCHAR(400) field. The folks today, showed me how to extract them while looking for the "line breaks" to identify new paragraphs.
That works great, BUT as you know, I can only indent the first paragraph. I am kind of lost at the moment (to say the least!). Maybe, as you mentioned, I am using the wrong strategy? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
