Eliminate Backslash

See attached. Notice in the address line (url), the variable wot is passed in the query string. Note on the form it is displayed as RK\'s 2nd test for Mike.

The value attribute is printed as a php variable. There are NO backslashes in the query string variable.

Why do they display in the form field? How can I get rid of them?

I used that, it does nothing. Nor would I expect it to, there is no \ in the incoming string.

Note the passed query string DOES NOT have a \ in it.

are magic Quotes enabled?

I was uploading the modified program to the WRONG directory on the server; so of course none of my changes took.

I's working now; I used stripslashes & a BUNCH of other things.
