Single quotes automatically escaped
eventide - 4/29/2009 at 06:41 PM

In the events in my calendar I need to use single quotes, but, apparently due to the php parsing the text, all of the single quotes have the escape backslash "" before it making it look pretty silly. It looks something like: "Mark's Page".

Also if I have a single quote in the text of a link <a href="mark.html">Mark's page</a> the link is broken when the page is rendered because the escape characters are added. For instance one of the links looks something like this:

Obviously, that link won't work!

How can I overcome this?


P.S. Geez! I just previewed this post before submitting and the backslash that I typed in between the double quotes above didn't even show!
