But then aren't you ending up with 2 sets of linebreaks? The linebreaks added by the user's paste job, and then the linebreaks added by the browser?

So you end up output like:

Here is a line break where my browser decided to break the line, but I thought it would actually be here.

    No, only because I strip any linebreaks not associated with HTML tags. Think of it like the non-standard WRAP=VIRTUAL tag, which shows the word wrapping without putting it in.

    I'd LOVE for that to become standard. Let the user pick where the linebreaks are, and not have to scroll one massive line all the time to edit.
