Mysql is data storage. It has no knowledge of your html markup. So it would be best to just store the html as is.

I use the FORM <input text> tags to save the text in to a mysql db, users just copy and paste in to that form and send it to the php where the function save the text in a mysql DB.. so users can't spend time to add <b> or <u> tags , in wordpad you can see the TEXT FORMATING as it is with BOLD UNDELINE.. the form sends and save "\n" or others but i need to know if for BOLD or UNDELINE have their Special Chars too..

If you copy and paste from wordpad, the formatting is lost.
