Hello Experts,

I am using FPDF.

The first line in the code is:

$companyTitle = stripslashes($_GET['companyTitle']);

The problem with the above code is when $companyTitle contains special characters such as an ampersend "&" sign.

I am trying using "urlencode" like so:

$companyTitle = urlencode($_GET['companyTitle']);

But for some reason it does not help.

can anyone help?
