Hi Jeffrey,

try this:
print "<input type='text' name='some_variable' value='".htmlspecialchars($some_text)."'>\n";

I have an application which calls up some data from a MySQL table and puts it into a web form for users to modify. One of the cells holds a text string which is put into a text input field. However, if that text string includes an apostrophe, all text after the apostrophe disappears.
For example, if the test string from a database cell reads...
Fix the managers' cars by Tuesday
and that is saved in the variable $some_text, which is called up in a form...
<input type='text' name='some_variable' value='$some_text'>
The text field on the web page will only contain...
Fix the managers
How can I get the text field to show the entire string?
Many thanks,
