Try using the specialcharacters, and htmlenteties functions... those
should to the trick. As long as you are getting the appropriate into the
right place.

Subject: [PHP-DB] Truncated Data


I desperately need help...  I've based my entire project on the use of
input text boxes that can be read or edited.  Its a web form that gets
its data from mysql tables.  For some reason when I write the code this
way and use single quotes ('), everything after a single quote in the
string gets truncated:

  echo "<input $ca name=university[$y] value='$university[$y]'>";

But when I use double quotes (") like this:

  echo "<input $ca name=university[$y] value=\"$university[$y]\">";

Everything after a " gets truncated in the text string.  When I first
input the data it goes into the mysql database fine.  The problem only
lies in when I import the value into the html form.  I even tried
writing the code like this:

  echo "<input $ca name=university[$y] value=$university[$y]>";

And here is what the source code shows:
  <input class=Inputa name=university[1] value=John's "Wayne">

But the input box shows only:  John's

Oh, and I don't get the problem when I use <textarea> instead of <input>
tags, but they just won't do for the design.
Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated.
