I am trying to create an online admin section where html can be edited on my site but whenever there is a ' or " or \ the submitted data comes out as \' or \" or \\...

for example
[codes]<form action=test.php method=post>
<textarea><table><td width='400'>"hello"</td></table></textarea>[/codes]

comes out as:
<table><td width=\'400\'>\"hello\"</td></table>

Is there any way to decode this? I have tried urldecode() and htmlspecialchars() but they don't work...

Thanks
Ben

The addition means that you have addslashes on. To get rid of the \ simply

$no_slashes = stripslashes($variable);
