Thanks cpradio, but I was experimenting with different character combinations the a user might use accidentally or on purpose.
I've never looked specifically at how dbl quotes work there way through php as a form input or a hack. I just assumed they'd be processed. I know I should've known better. They don't work for me without escaping. Obviously they won't work for a user for the same reason.
I did discover that unescaped dbl and single quotes as a form input results in no data being placed in a table. I didn't know that explicitly.
I suppose that counts a problem solved even though it wasn't ever a problem. I'll just count the last hour to towards my 10,000. Am I there yet? lol
