<input type="text" name="T1" size="40" value='<?php  echo "Don\'\'t Know";?>'>

Nope still not working.

The result is just DON

<input type="text" name="'T1" size="40" value='<?php if(isset($_POST[''T1'])) { echo stripslashes($_POST[''T1']) ;} ?>'>

The result is just DON
not Don't Know.

thank you for the following this problem.
seems like it's working fine now.

I will post the message if I see any more problem.

The below is the working version.
Thank you every much.


//form Test_Opostrophe.php <p>
Normal echo>>>>
<?php if(isset($_POST['T1'])) { echo stripslashes($_POST['T1']) ;} ?>

<form method="POST" action="Test_Opostrophe_submit.php">
Enter something with the backslash, the script will display all of the backslash perfectly now.
<br>
Notes if... wanted to pre-enter text within the text box or assign the string remember to put the backslash in font of the opostrope


<input type="text" name="T1" size="40" value="<?php if(isset($_POST['T1'])) { echo stripslashes($_POST['T1']) ;} ?>"></input>
<input type="submit" value="Submit" name="B1">
</form>
<p>&nbsp;</p>


//form Test_Opostrophe_Submit.php<p>

<form method="POST" action="Test_Opostrophe.php">

Normal echo >>>>>

<?php if(isset($_POST['T1'])) { echo stripslashes($_POST['T1']) ;} ?>

&nbsp;<p>Echo within the textbox</p>
<input type="text" name="T1" size="40" value="<?php if(isset($_POST['T1'])) { echo stripslashes($_POST['T1']) ;} ?>"></input>
<input type="submit" value="Submit" name="B1"></form><BR>
