How do I store formatting data, color, tables etc that are made in html editor,

H i there everybody

I have set up a form using html editor to up load info into my database to be displayed dynamically

I can upload the information ok ...... but all formatting gets lost if I put a table inside the form or other formatting It gets lost when I display it later dynamically

So..... how do I store all the great features that html editor makes?

How do I set up my database to store the data uploaded from my forms .......

May sound a bit of a strange thing to ask ...... but I DO already know how to make forms and store NORMAL information....... letters and numbers ..... but I have no idea how to store all the table info bullet lists info formatting info that gets generated when using html editor

Any help would be great

When you are inserting the data into your db is is being reformatted then, or when you retrieve the results and view them? When you are adding in the info use the source button to see all of the source then copy this to a text file. Then go into your db and check what is stored for that record, you can copy it to another text file. If they differ in any way then that would indicate that the formatting is occurring on insert. If they are the same then it would be when you are retrieving the results that they are becoming formatted incorrectly.

Please post back with this info and the the two text files with the data to compare if you can't spot any differences.
