If not, it needed where "it's needed" becomes "it\'s needed" to be stored in your SQL backend.

A second way to avoid problems is to store your datas as "the HTMLText of field n" (the HTMLText is a property and don't apply to var contents. See the dictionary for the details)

If I request the data from the database via my LC project, everything gets pulled back correctly, apostrophes are apostrophes, question marks are question marks. However, when I pull the data from the database using an .irev script and display as html in web browser, apostrophes are not correct (questions marks in black box, or if I change the charset in the header of the irev script, a completely different non-english character appears.)
