Have you tried using single quotes instead of double quotes around your
echo statements? Usually you have to use different characters to define
your echo string than you use within the string. I don't know for sure
whether this is true when using " but it's worth a try.

Subject: [WEB400] Weird happening when html from data includes HREF

Hi all - I am having something odd happen with two PHP pages. On the

first page, I have the following code:

<input type="hidden"
value=" <?php
If ($ErrorMsg == '')
echo $Quantity. " added to your cart. Continue shopping or <a
href=&quot;cart.php?FromScreen=" . $ScreenToRedisplay ."&quot;> go to
cart.</a> ";
echo $ErrorMsg; ?> ">

This page POSTs to a second page, which contains this code.

$ItemMessageText = $_POST["ItemMessageText"];

When $ErrorMsg is blank, the value of ItemMessageText on the second page


3 added to your cart. Continue shopping or <a href
=\"cart.php?FromScreen=/1dev/adult.php\"> go to cart.</a>

Notice that the quotes surrounding the name of the hyperlnk have been
escaped - there is a \ prior to the quotes. I have no idea why this is

happening and it causes the link to fail

To make it more odd, the problem happens when the script is run on a
GoDaddy server, but works fine (quotes are not escaped) when run on
ZendServer on an IBM i box
