What do you see in the source code in such place? Are there strange symbols, too, or some HTML entities?

sorry for the delay of my answer...

I realize that I am getting a certain symbol only at each point the line brakes and the same at the start of the next one... The rest of the text is readable

Is there a way to make the text inside the "pre" tag float as the regular text; and if not how can I get rid of those symbols

Sorry if there is an obvious answer to my questions, I am a web designer -not a programmer- so I am not that into the PHP world : )

thanks again for your time

Hello. Can you show us an example? And post the text you're putting in the "pre" tag here?

well not exactly something like that... something is happening with the encoding again... I'll try to make a "dummy" example...

Here on our board, PRE tag is disabled, it would be more useful to see this in action on your own website. If you don't want to provide URL publically, you can use our contact form and send it to use directly to check, thanks.
