i've read the following comment on PHP.net and found it very troubling because my 
database has Shift_JIS japanese words and my forms allow japanese input as well, so, 
does anyone know how can I stripslashes correctly when it comes to Japanese text? 
thanx thanx!

Might I warn readers that they should be vary careful with the use of stripslashes on 
Japanese text. The shift_jis character set includes a number of two-byte code 
charcters that contain the hex-value 0x5c (backslash) which will get stripped by this 
function thus garbling those characters.
