You can encode string before sending it out.
Try htmlspecialchars($str, ENT_QUOTES).. before sending string

---------------------
from PHP manual:
The translations performed are:


  a.. '&' (ampersand) becomes '&'

  b.. '"' (double quote) becomes '"' when ENT_NOQUOTES is not set.

  c.. ''' (single quote) becomes ''' only when ENT_QUOTES is set.

  d.. '<' (less than) becomes '&lt;'

  e.. '>' (greater than) becomes '&gt;'

-------------

Hope this helps,
