I think it depends on the database that you are using. Oracle and MS-SQL both require quotes to be escaped with another quote, MySQL uses backslashes.
I seem to recall that two quotes is the standard...

Of course it is even better to use bind vars and then you don't need to escape the quotes (or worry about sql injection attacks)...

did I mention I have been using firebird and the php-extension for the last year and a half ;-)
