double quotes in content management break page

Just a quickie...as I'm sure I had this resolved a while back but I have since then refreshed code and an old bug have come back..

if my client add some text content to a page and for example is they use " " within the content it will break the page....what should I be doing so that the break doesn't break...I'm sure there was something I needed to add in the page head section or in the CKEDITOR part of code. I just cannot remember.

ah ok, I will look into that with my hosting :)

if I still have issues after thee weekend I will crate and FTP account for you and upload the website to a development hosting. As mentioned earlier, I am almost positive that I had this issue before and it was a simply solution. I'm wondering also if it has anything to do with use UTF-8 (I just thinking out loud).

Hi Jason, I thought to let you know this issue was resolved. With the help of Ray. the issues were in my metatags (I was duplicating my product description withing these metatags, which also found that they were outputting html code (since I needed to store html code for product description for layout purposes...but obviously not needed in metatags). Anyway the solution was to strip the html code as well as using htmlentities to make sure that special codes such as " " are converted to html friendly.

<?php echo htmlentities(strip_tags($row_ItemDetail['ProductLongDesc'])); ?>
