I understand that mysql_escape_string() is depreciated. Asking about
other similar functions does not seem out of line.

Here, the key seems to be to turn the warning level down, which I do
not have privileges to do on this server. But it fact this seems to be
the key that I was missing, and even though I cannot make use of it at
