Hi,<BR><BR>I have an HTML form and am inserting data from the form into a database on submit. However, in the past when I have done this I have had problems with special characters such as !? etc, as these have been converted to their character codes when stored in the database and when displayed on another page the code is shown and not the character. Is there a good way round this or should this not happen anyway ?<BR><BR>I was given a response to an earlier post, but this referred to SQL Server and Access whilst I am using mySQL, and to be honest I could not understand it. I haven't been able to find any simple FAQ's on this subject ?<BR><BR>Thanks,<BR>Hal.
