I asked this question on phpbuilder.com before and got the following
nl2br() is probably not the best way to do it.
The following will replace blank lines with <P> and allow the the rest of the

$message = ereg_replace("\r\n\r\n", "\n<P>", $message);
It worked fine for me (in a message board application).
