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

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 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.
