Hi,

Why not use the mysql escape character ?

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/string-syntax.html

\'  A single quote (“'”) character.

You will take the string you want to insert and replace all (') with (\').

You could also just replace the apostrophes with ascii like such

$string = str_replace("'", "'", $string);

Cheers,
