i've got myself into a bit of a mess. i have a database with approx 4000
records (mysql) and when  i populated the database i was given 4000 text
files with the product name as the file name and the description of the
product as the contents.

so i set up a text field in the table to hold the descriptions and wrote a
script in php to handle the import. all went well, client impressed etc, but
now i'm running into problems with allsorts of escape chars in the
description field and am looking for a script that will strip the escape
chars from the database ...

anyone had similar problems ? new records added to the db now have all html
chars translated on input and translated on query.

many thanks,
