A real beginner question but i'm having difficulty with escaping input form data containing commas. Eg. Name entered as O'Neill. I'm checking magic quotes is switched off in th php.ini file which it is so i'm not stripping slashes from the input data. I am however using the mysql real_escape_string function on the data before adding it to the database. Its stored on the database as O'Neill and not O/'Neill however when i retrieve it using mysql SELECT statement the pho code is displaying it as O. Do i need to add a backslash to php knows its not the end of a string but actually part of the string?
Any general advice on this?
