The data come from the DB, and it's the user who feed the DB hence can not
control user from using '&'. Is there  a way of escaping this character if
the data comes from the DB? I have resaerched all over on the  internet but
have not gotten an appropriate explaination. It tells me to use '&amp;' but
this data comes from the DB, how can i pick all '&' and trasform them in to

Please assist, it's this discussion i mostly rely on in terms of knowledge
