I'm quite new to WordPress and have just done my first installation of it, and didn't find anyone writing about the problem I ran in to.
When I add a link to a post, \'es are added to the html code:
These "\" break all the links in the posts that I have published.
My guess is that this has nothing to do with WordPress, as I didn't see others having this problem. I am running version 1.5.2. Could this be related to how MySQL is set up?
