    PHP converting Pound Signs incorrectly

    Hi All

    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:

    PHP Code:
    // UPDATE query here...
    pagecontent '".mysql_real_escape_string($pagecontent)."' 
    Now for some reason this is converting signs to be £ in my database - why is this??

    I am not converting them with htmlentities, I just want the signs to remain as signs in my database and not entity versions.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks for reading.

    My guess is that it's the WYSIWYG editor doing the conversion, if, in fact, you are not applying htmlentities() anywhere in the data flow.
