XHTML isn't too different. There are different `rules' -- like tags
and attributes must be lower case, values must be surrounded by double
quotes, tags without closing tags: <br />, <img src="i.gif" alt=" " />,

Yes, that's why you surround the value in quotes. :-) Escaping has
noting to do with it really, unless you're print()ing like:

print "Brian is a little off his \"rocker\"";


print 'Brian is somewhat \'out of it\' most of the time';

The problem you spoke of happens when you do this:

<input type="text" name="brian" value=is insane>

IIRC, $brian would turn out to contain 'is' without the insanity.
