PHP converting Pound Signs incorrectly
I am using a WYSWYG text editor in my CMS and when I post the page to save the data, I simply capture the following field and save it to the database as such:
Now for some reason this is converting £ signs to be £ in my database - why is this??
// UPDATE query here...
pagecontent = '".mysql_real_escape_string($pagecontent)."'
I am not converting them with htmlentities, I just want the £ signs to remain as £ signs in my database and not entity versions.
Thanks for reading.
