As a rule of thumb, you should never ever cross-post to so many 
newsgroups or mailing lists!  Just asking here on the PHP list alone 
will get you the answer to this question.

That said, the PHP developers have created a function that can escape 
the quotes for you -- it is called "addslashes()".  Read the man pages 
for addslashes() and stripslashes() at www.php.net for information on 
their usage.

You may also be able to set the gpc_magic_quotes setting in your php.ini 
on your server, but using addslashes() and stripslashes() allows you to 
fine-tune your control.
