If you look at your source code, you'll see that the entire string is there. It will look like this: Value="New York\"City\"" HTML doesn't know that \ is used to escape the " character. It just sees the string "New York\" and treats the rest as an unknown attribute. So, to do it correctly, you should use this: Value="<?=htmlentities(stripslashes($your_text))?>" ---John Holmes... -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
