Hi, 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!
hash at samurai dot fm 01-Dec-2003 10:34 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. hh
