Hello. I need some direction for the following problem (I am not sure where to begin my research):

I essentially, using PHP and MySQL, allow a user to enter character data into a form, submit the form, and next have this data saved to the database, then a formatted version of said character data returned to the user's machine and displayed in the browser. (Similar to how I am entering text here, submitting and having a visible formatted copy to view)

I know this is probably a simple matter but I am having trouble getting all the necessary steps in order.

Thank-you for any help in advance.

I guess I am in the "theoretical" at this point, that is, I have not started coding anything yet. I am new to PHP and am just trying to sort out the steps as to solve this problem. This is a personal project and I am hoping to collect information or simply a push in the right direction from where I can do further research (thus far, my online search has not produced significant returns). I hope that I am explaing my original problem clearly: User types characters into form > submits > data is saved to database > user's formatted data is returned to browser and displayed.

Thank-you.

Do you at least now how to insert the data into the DB? If not, then I suggest you first read an online tutorial on PHP:
http://www.w3schools.com/php/default.asp

If you are already familiar with the syntax of php, then try skipping to the "forms" section of the tutorial. Be sure the read the MySQL portion.
