so i have an asp.net c# web app that generates an xml string using string builder that concatenates a bunch of text boxes and drop downs into an xml parameter and passes it to SQL proc.

everything was going well until someone entered "eat at joe's" and the single quote broke the stored proc...

whast the best way to manage this?
