    Unhappy Moving to the next structure array

    Hello All,
    I need some help here. I have my attached program below. The problem I am having is, I seem to keep writing over the same structure array. I need to increment to the next array some how and after all text is gathered, pass to the structure pointer and then the function. I should be able to print out mulitiple lines of text, but it seems the last array is all that is passed to function.

    Help?

    //Code//


    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <string.h>

    #define YES 1
    #define NO 0 // not used
    #define $



    struct data {
    char* text;
    int bold, italic, underline;
    };

    void createPage( struct data *);

    int main(void) {


    int response;
    char buff[BUFSIZ];
    struct data myStructArray[20];
    do
    {
    fflush(stdin);
    printf( "Please enter a line of text: " );
    fgets( buff, BUFSIZ, stdin );

    myStructArray[0].text = malloc( 100 ); // allocate space
    strcpy( myStructArray[0].text, buff );

    while ( 1 ) {
    // Process text?
    printf( "\nDo you want text to be bold?[1/0] " );
    fgets( buff, BUFSIZ, stdin );
    sscanf( buff, "%d", &response );

    if ( response == YES ) {
    //* Assign value of text to bold address *//
    myStructArray[0].bold = YES;
    puts( "Text will be in Bold" );
    break;
    } else
    break;
    fflush(stdin);
    }
    while ( 1 ) {
    // Process text?
    printf( "\nDo you want text to be in Italics?[1/0] " );
    fgets( buff, BUFSIZ, stdin );
    sscanf( buff, "%d", &response );

    if ( response == YES ) {
    //* Assign value of text to italics address *//
    myStructArray[0].italic= YES;
    puts( "Text will be in Italics" );
    break;
    } else
    break;
    }
    fflush(stdin);

    while ( 1 ) {
    // Process text?
    printf( "\nDo you want text to be Underlined?[1/0] " );
    fgets( buff, BUFSIZ, stdin );
    sscanf( buff, "%d", &response );

    if ( response == YES ) {
    //* Assign value of text to underlined address *//
    myStructArray[0].underline= YES;
    puts( "Text will be in Italics" );
    break;
    } else
    break;
    }

    createPage( myStructArray );


    printf("Would you like to enter another line of text?[1/0] ");
    scanf("%d", &response);

    } while (response != 0);

    // createPage( myStructArray );
    return 0;
    }

    void createPage( struct data *a) {
    /* Create the output file */
    FILE* outFile;
    outFile = fopen( "phaseTwo.html","w" );

    /* All HTML files must start with this tag. */
    fprintf( outFile,"<html>\n" );


    if ( a->bold == YES ) {
    fprintf( outFile,"<b>" );
    }

    if ( a->italic == YES ) {
    fprintf( outFile,"<i>" );
    }

    if ( a->underline == YES ) {
    fprintf( outFile,"<u>" );
    }


    /* Write to the file HTML representing a line of text. */
    fprintf( outFile,"<p>" );
    fprintf( outFile,"%s",a->text );

    Man, what's with all those while(1) loops?
    And you still haven't figured out this code posting have you?

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <string.h>
    
    #define YES 1
    #define NO 0 // not used
    
    struct data {
        char* text;
        int bold, italic, underline;
    };
    
    void createPage ( struct data *array, int num );
    
    int main ( void ) {
        int response, i;
        char buff[BUFSIZ];
        struct data myStructArray[20];
    
        // this loop in a function would be a good idea 
        for ( i = 0 ; i < 20 ; i++ ) {
            printf( "Please enter a line of text (blank to exit): " );
            fflush( stdout );
            fgets( buff, BUFSIZ, stdin );
            if ( strlen(buff) == 1 ) break;
    
            myStructArray[i].text = malloc( strlen(buff)+1 ); // allocate space
            strcpy( myStructArray[i].text, buff );
    
            printf( "\nDo you want text to be bold?[1/0] " );
            fflush( stdout );
            fgets( buff, BUFSIZ, stdin );
            sscanf( buff, "%d", &response );
            myStructArray[i].bold = response;
    
            printf( "\nDo you want text to be Italics?[1/0] " );
            fflush( stdout );
            fgets( buff, BUFSIZ, stdin );
            sscanf( buff, "%d", &response );
            myStructArray[i].italic = response;
    
            printf( "\nDo you want text to be Underlined?[1/0] " );
            fflush( stdout );
            fgets( buff, BUFSIZ, stdin );
            sscanf( buff, "%d", &response );
            myStructArray[i].underline = response;
        }
    
        createPage( myStructArray, i );
        return 0;
    }
    
    void createPage( struct data *a, int num ) {
        int i;
        FILE* outFile;
        outFile = fopen( "phaseTwo.html","w" );
    
        /* All HTML files must start with this tag. */
        fprintf( outFile,"<html>\n" );
    
        for ( i = 0 ; i < num ; i++, a++ ) {
            if(a->bold == YES) {
                fprintf( outFile,"<b>" );
            }
            if(a->italic == YES) {
                fprintf( outFile,"<i>" );
            }
            if(a->underline == YES) {
                fprintf( outFile,"<u>" );
            }
    
            /* Write to the file HTML representing a line of text. */
            fprintf( outFile,"<p>" );
            fprintf( outFile,"%s",a->text );
            fprintf( outFile,"</p>\n" );
    
            if(a->bold == YES) {
                fprintf( outFile,"</b>\n" );
            }
            if(a->italic == YES) {
                fprintf( outFile,"</i>\n" );
            }
            if(a->underline == YES) {
                fprintf( outFile,"</u>\n" );
            }
        }
    
        fprintf( outFile,"</html>\n" );
        fclose( outFile );
    }
