Display data as user entered with space and line break while using htmlspeacialchars function

I am using


function to add a line break and then

but the code displays
while it should have been a line break.
I have tried to put htmlspeacialchars() above but same output is displayed.
I'm fetching data from my database variable named blog while I'm displaying some code too viz "
or any other ".


and line break is echoed as:

<br />

And more over I don't want to use javascript.


I've found solution from How to use add line break using nl2br while using htmlspeacialchars
And they suggest using both functions in this way.As I was not able to realise what Don't panic suggested in his comment.
