Flash php and mysql

hi guys - this is real basic so sorry if im not challenging anyone! quite new to this, and have set up a database for username and password in a flash file, but have noticed that the entries in mysql also contain the text formatting - how can i turn this off

also the password doesnt come through, just letters and numbers

have set up a similar login page using just html and php, and this works fine with mysql, so im assuming im not doing something right in the flash file

thanks for your help
