Hi,
you can't actually do that in a way thats cross browser friendly.

HOWEVER, try this...

when you insert you values use the   character to spread out the words.

Is there a way to store HTML into a MySQL TEXT column, yet be able to search over textual content only? For example, if I store the following HTML snippet: <p>A very <em>small</em> paragraph.</p> .... into an TEXT column, I would like to be able to search in the text "A very small paragraph." only, meaning the search would find "small" (even if it's enclosed in <em> tags and

I'm facing an extremely irksome bug in FireFox. This select tag is not rendering quite right. When I click on it to choose a color, it shows a scroll tab, but the scroll only goes down to the 43 option and ends with f0f. However, I find that when I use the arrow keys, I can still walk through the whole list. It just isn't visible. Considering the javascript involved, this is a limiting bug. Text color: <select...

Also, would like to know if I can change the justification on each line of text as it's entered. i.e. Company Name, address, city state and zip would be centered and all the

tblCourses one to many to tblEvents. A course may have an intro workshop (a type of event), a mid course workshop, a final exam. Or any combination. Or something different in the future. At the moment the printed output is usually going to Word. It's turning into an unholy mess, because I'm having to prepare umpteen different Word templates, and the queries that drive them, depending on what events a course has.

I can't seem to cut-and-paste text, with either .doc or .html formatting, into my .asp web-pages --all the formatting is lost. Is there some code that needs to be added to the page that will tell.asp to leave the formatting the way it is? I thought that the fact that .asp is a MicroSoft product, there would be complete compatibility with "word.doc" text formatting --perhaps I'm wrong about that. Thanks.
