PHP echo Displaying HTML Code, Not Desired HTML Content

In the following page, notice the section "Product Information" http://goo.gl/pRk70

Why won't this content display properly?  It's acting like I've used htmlspecialchars or htmlentities but I haven't.

The database entry is as such:

<font size="1" face="Univers-CondensedLight"><font size="1" face="Univers-CondensedLight">• Easily switches between speakerphone, headset, and handset modes</font></font><p align="LEFT"><font size="1" face="Univers-CondensedLight"><font size="1" face="Univers-CondensedLight">• 32-character LCD display shows number dialed, length of call, and other useful information</p><p>
• 36-entry phone book</p><p>
• 99-number incoming and outgoing call history directories let you easily access past call information</p><p>
• Mute button allows private off-line conversation without other party hearing your conversation</p><p>
• Caller ID with on Call Waiting</p><p>
• Distinctive rings for each line</p><p>
• One-touch speed dial and search/sort speed dialing</p><p>
• Repetitive redial</p><p>
• FSK and expanded PBX message waiting indicator</p><p>
• Nonvolatile RAM protects stored information if power is lost</p></font></font>

You can use htmlspecialchars_decode http://us2.php.net/manual/en/function.htmlspecialchars-decode.php to take care of that part of the problem.  You also have a character set mismatch as shown by the " â€¢ FSK ".  That's usually when you are showing UTF8 characters on a Latin1 page (which you are doing).

Thanks, this wasn't the whole problem, though.  The other part was that I wasn't allowing special characters into my database (dumb on my part, didn't realize at first).
