Store literal strings in the DB, get them back out


Recommended Posts

I have an input textbox on a form. If the user enters ' into the field, how can I store that exact string in the database? And then, how can I read that string back out?


As it is now, the text is being converted to an apostrophe. I assume that similar strings would also be translated. I need to store the string exactly as entered, because later that text will be used on a webpage (where the browser will translate it appropriately).




On MySQL 5.1.47, PHP 5.2.14
