You could look up the PHP function get_magic_quotes_gpc()

When a form is posted, you could do a check like this:

if ( get_magic_quotes_gpc() ) {
        //where $subject contains the subject string and $newsubject is
what you use for the mail
        $newsubject = stripslashes ($subject);  

This will remove the escape slashes added by the server php settings.
Read magic_quotes_gpc in php reference.

Subject: [PHP-DB] Form processing

I am trying to set up a form which will send e-mails for "late breaking
and urgent e-mailings.  

If I have "Today's news" in the subject line on the e-mail it comes out 
with "Today\'s news" --- how can I prevent this from happening?
