Printing off shows all html

I am using HTML Editor in Univeral E Mail to send out price increase letters to a database.

Please see attached

1. The font is set to Tahoma but has not formatted correctly on the email (see screenshot ) > If you view the HTML Code you will see this has been set to Tahoma

2. When you print off the e mail - all the HTML TAGS show on the print off. CAn I stop this form happening so the e mail arrived in a printable format ?

How can I Solve these please

Thank you in advance

if you look closely at the html it is not properly formatted.

for example, I see:

<SPAN style=""font-family: " tahoma;\?>

there is an extra quote in this and the style is not inside the first set of quotes, it should be:
<SPAN style="font-family: tahoma;">

I see that for all of the styles on this page.

Thanks but...

Thanks Jason - but this is all being formatted by HTML Editor.

Why is it not formatting properly then ? My client says he typed in Tahoma and sent the mail which came through as shown.

When you print it off - all HTML shows on the page. Is this a bug then on the latest version of HTML Editor ?

the issue was caused by the magic-quotes_gpc setting being turned on in the php.ini file.

we resolved by using stripslashes() on the form output.

to prevent the problem in the future I recommended using the following script at line 1 of the form page:


if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST")     {
$_POST as $key => $val) {
$_POST[$key] = stripslashes($val);
