Yes I'm using iRite for a backend with insert and updating with DataAssist.
Versions is iRite 1.03 DataAssist 2.06.
The name of the iRite instace is in this case "text" but it can be other in other instaces.
I have ckecked Encode "HTML entities" in iRite
Encode HTML entities: Checking this box causes the editor to encode special characters such as quotes and ampersands as HTML entities.
Does it not work?
