hello peeps! i was tweaking my wordpress installation earlier and i changed the tagline/description of my blog thru the admin options. i wanted to have a word in the description in italic (while others are not, e.g. "hello world"). however, when i placed the tags along with the description and then clicked the update option button, all of the data in the option page became messed up. my blog header originally has an apostrophe in it and after i saved the options the apostrophe was preceded by a backslash (\) as if it was considered as an escape character. not only that, the data in the date format was messed up as well (e.g., all the \ i've placed were preceded with a \). and everytime i click the save button, the \ kept on appearing. when i view my blog, the \ still appears even on my header.
i need help on this one. thanks.
