Hi d_rijken,

That's the server rewriting things to prevent an injection attack of some sort.  Where exactly is it happening?

Hi Jason,

It's happening with every content. Even when we put it a wysiwyg editor. Also file uploads etc etc. But is it a server config setting?

But how is the content getting to the server?  Form posts?  FTP?

If it's happening with form posts, then it most likely is the magic_quotes_gpc directive in the php.ini file.
