    Maigic quotes suck...

    I think we should end all this magic quote crap and having to escape charecters crap, and just invent a new charecter on the keyboard we use instead of qutoes to enclose text in.

    Get it? Good.

    But inevitably the character you select will have some other use/meaning and when trying to represent that, you'll have to escape it.

    Except it wouldn't ever have another use or meaning. It would be some crazy charecter that is ONLY used for that purpose.

    I guess if you are writing a tutorial though, you might need to use it in an article as an example. But you could have another charecter on the keyboard that makes the same image on screen, but in the code its different, so it doesn't need to be escaped?

    Dreaming...
