&'s are not legal in HTML.  You need to escape them.  When pulling stuff 
out of the file, use htmlspecialchars() before displaying the text in 
your form.

THEN, when you're putting the user input from the form back into the 
file, use this:

   $Replace['&amp;']  = '&';
   $Replace['&lt;']   = '<';
   $Replace['&gt;']   = '>';
   $Replace['&quot;'] = '"';

   $UserInput = strtr($UserInput, $Replace);
