debugSQL() still seems to work for me. Do you have a sample page I can look at to demonstrate this issue? I'll take a look and see what I can find.
I added automatic Cross Site Scripting protection to the latest build that will cause encoding of html special characters. I just updated the build this morning. If you install the latest build it will have v2.12 of the rsobj.php file that will include a setting to disable the cross site scripting protection site-wide on line 11.
You can also prevent the cross site scripting protection in the -<getColumnVal() function by passing an additional 'false' parameter like:
That would return the "unprotected" version of the code including any html.
