Displaying database contents on the web

Threaded View
I have a comments field in my database that I want on the web.
I put some weird characters in for testing.
When I had <b> in the comment field it turned all text after that bold.
I tried using htmlspecialchars() & htmlentities() but then I got
"&#8221;" instead of a quote.

The code I'm using to display the text in HTML is:
   <P><FONT SIZE="+1">
<? echo(htmlentities($ResultOne['Comment'][0])); ?>

Do I need to change the HTML code or is there a PHP function that will
handle all weird characters in this situation?  Please keep in mind I'm
fairly new to this, so if there's an obvious answer just point me in
the right direction.

Someone had suggested using a regex function but I couldn't find that
in my manual, I assumed they were referring to the htmlspecialchars()

Re: Displaying database contents on the web

For clarification, I take it that you want your quotes to remain as
quotes, and not become html entities. You were close, just use the

htmlentities( $str, ENT_NOQUOTES );  // leaves ' and " as they are
