I am sort of new to php and mysql (in regards to experience with it as a programmer), so my apologies for the silly questions :)

I am trying to pull text that was entered into a table. See code below. The only problem seems to be with lines like this:

$rows .= '<tr><td colspan=3>Video Title:</td><td><input name=video_title value='.$row['video_title'].' type=text maxlength=60></td></tr>';

Say the title is "the title", it only pulls out "the". I am wondering if I am using the wrong method for pulling the data, or if I should correct the way I am doing it. Looking at php.net I see these:


Any suggestions for an alternative method?

thank you for your help :)
