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
