If I have a textarea and a complete the form like:

99 Main Street
Springfield
New York

And I store it in the database.
When I pull it into a variable to be echoed, how do I create the <br />'s i.e. to stop it looking like:

99 Main Street Springfield New York

is it something to do with /n?

Can't you just echo the <br /> itself? Add it to the end of each string. (Or possibly "<br \/>". I forget.)

:: detour to random page to confirm that that's what I did in recently created navigation footer ::

The difference between \n and and <br> is the same as in ordinary raw html: one affects what you see in the code. The other affects what the user sees.

You can use the nl2br function:
