For a plugin that needs to cope with chinese names and characters I'm using:

 `htmlentities(trim($value), ENT_QUOTES, "UTF-8"); `


(for data fields that might also end up being post titles).


When the data is being parroted back at the user via a form, is there 
any reason not to do something like :




(I figure attribute_escape being native to the WordPress platform might 
deserve to be respected/retained but I don't want to show escaped 
'quotes' e.g. `\'` as its a critical part of many chinese names)

I seem to be blocked from the forum agin/still, so hope someone here can 
help me please.
