    I've been using PhpGedView for several years.
    Following an upgrade to 4.2.4 I am having huge issues with surnames which have apostrophes.
    The website is for O'Sullivans but there are also lots of other irish surnames with the apostrophe which are now getting escaped with the backslash character.
    O'Sullivan is being saved as O\'Sullivan etc.
    It causes problems as everytime you edit an Individual it will continue to append backslashes.  It also affects Notes and the User Admin functions.
    This issue did not affect earlier versions of PhpGedView so I am wondering is there a simple patch/fix or how can I resolve?
    Any tips or suggestions welcome.
    Thanks
    Eoin
