sorry for asking here but i've done a bit of searching on the php sites and it seems my questions are probably too simple to warrant an answer, so if any php buff would be kind enough to answer the following then i'd appreciate it:

1) how do i make it so that when a user enters a carriage return into a multiline text field, php knows to put a <"BR> in at some point?

2) how do i detect whether an image exists, therefore being able to point to a "no avatar" image like this site does?

i have the basics all fine and dandy but it's just these two little nuances. any help will do. thanks.

edit: and for future reference (i don't need to know now but i might as well ask) how can i make a script which parses character combinations like : + ) into smilies?

1.
<?
$text="This is text
This is more text";
$text=nl2br($text);
echo $text;
?>
Dunno bout no. 2

and i've done a text to smiley thing on scorpion-e.tk, its not really that hard

file: http://www.smegsoft.exaltedhosting.com/~scorpion/smilies.php (right click/save as)

then in the file(s) that you want the text>smilie thing just do:
<?
$text=smilies($text);
?>

joe, you can't use 'save as' to download php files

Part one can also be done so:

<?
//Getting text out of editbox
$text=$_POST['text'];
//Replacing itself
$text=ereg_replace("\n", "
", $text);
//Printing
echo "${text}";
?>
