If you're like me and you just want to output basic text to the screen that is easy to read and format, then just using text/plain in PHP is a simple and effective solution!

To achieve this simply include the following line of code at the top of your pages before any other output...

("Content-Type: text/plain");
"This is pure text with a line break.\n";
"And this is another line.\n";

Now you'll get basic text/plain output on your php pages with simple line breaks

Hope this helps!
