After I type something in FCKeditor and save it in database. I output it in FCKeditor, it show a code format but not html. What can I do.

My code is showed as below

if ( isset( $_POST ) )
      {   $postArray = &$_POST ;                  // 4.1.0 or later, use $_POST
            foreach ( $postArray as $sForm => $value )
                  if ( get_magic_quotes_gpc() )
                        $postedValue = htmlspecialchars( stripslashes( $value ) ) ;
                        $postedValue = htmlspecialchars( $value ) ;

                  //$data .= $value;
                  $data .= $postedValue;

            $insert_sql_data = array('content' => $data);

$oFCKeditor->Value = $rs['content'] ;

I believe that anything typed the FCKeditor form is saved as text.  It is not parsed by the php engine unless you eval() the code after retrieving it from the database.

I think the problem is in the "htmlspecialchars". Why do you use it? Try just omit it:

f ( isset( $_POST ) )
      {   $postArray = &$_POST ;                  // 4.1.0 or later, use $_POST
            foreach ( $postArray as $sForm => $value )
                  if ( get_magic_quotes_gpc() )
                        $postedValue = stripslashes( $value )  ;
                  $data .= $postedValue;

            $insert_sql_data = array('content' => $data);
