If you are copying your text from your word processor, be sure to save the file as ASCII text prior to copying this text into the description area. Failing to do so will result in extra formatting codes and spaces being added to your record. This could cause problems for your record and the database.

For line breaks and paragraph breaks, simply leave the space within your text and the script will automatically add these breaks in the display of the textarea fields. Remove any extra spaces at the end of paragraphs! See Other Formatting.
