    Don't use htmlspecialchars before inserting it because you don't want " to turn into ". Just use addslashes to make sure that they're escaped properly. I've noticed that my POST variables are always already escaped so I'd recommend doing stripslashes() first and then doing addslashes() so that \" doesn't actually get stored in the database.
