How to accomodate those who do not have a compatible browser

The htmlArea 2 & 3 editors have been discontinued.

We've made these forums available as a read-only reference and knowledge-base for people using or developing editors based on htmlArea 2 or 3.

Anyone who is interested in taking over version 2 or 3 is free to do so. All we ask is that you choose a new name that doesn't have "htmlarea" in it to avoid confusion with this site. We'll even give you a link in the directory to make it easier for people to find you. If you are developing or hosting an htmlArea based-editor under a new name, please submit it to our directory.

How to accomodate those who do not have a compatible browser Can't Post

I realize htmlarea only creates a textarea when people have a browser that isn't supported, but offcourse, the textarea won't create html.

How can I know (in PHP) whether or not a person has htmlarea active or not? is it possible?

Because if he hasn't, I would want to do nl2br to save the content, and the reverse (strip br and show newlines) to show (edit) the content.

Any ideas?
