5k of data is way too much for varchar, so i would use a field of type TEXT.
i do this as well (storing html data in mysql) and it works great. some say
to use addslashes() although, on my setup (3.23/4.1) it seems to addslashes
automatically - not sure exactly why that is though.

Subject: inserting html into mysql tables

is there anything special i need to know in regards to creating a table to
hold html data? I am building a CMS for a site using php and mysql. The
various tables hold course information that the client wants to edit. I
imagine it will be a case of dropping the cleaned html source from
dreamweaver into a form box and posting it to the table.

What would a good varchar(?) be for say 5K of data?
