URL links breaking up on update

URL links breaking up on update

Hi, I have HTML editor working great, and it updates an existing record reasonably well apart from the fact that any links that are present from previous inserts/updates are breaking even though they worked after the initial insert.

What's happening is that the url's and the target info are getting two lots of double quotes appear around them when ever the record is called into the update page. These double quotes are then being written into the DB and as a consequence, are breaking any previously working links.

The following is happening: changes to """"

target="_blank" changes to ""target="_blank"""

Why is this happening?

The only way around it is to edit every link within the record to ensure the quotes are manually deleted, and my client has told me that's annoying him and the site has only been live for a few days!

Please help, thanks.
