Hello There.

DBI's function 'quote' guerentis to quote every unsusal charecter from your
string.
I just don't know if there is an un-quote function.
Chack it out.

Semuel.

This is a practical idea.
Now, what to do with other illegal character such as
 	<
 	>
 	&
and so on?

There should be some standard escaping procedure (for
