I've developed a plugin with an options form that allows me to save some default data.
If I type an HTML link into the textarea of the form...
<a href="http://alink.com/test/" >A Link </a>
it gets saved in the database as...
<a href=\"http://alink.com/test/\" >A Link </a>
Is this something WordPress is doing, or is it a magic quotes thing, or both?
