I've updated Advanced Textual Confirmation to the version 1.0.2.

The only change is corrected handling of the magic quotes. Now, if you have magic quotes "on" (not recommended), ATC handles this case really correctly.

What is "Magic Quotes"? A quote from the PHP documentation:
Magic Quotes is a process that automagically escapes incoming data to the PHP script. It's preferred to code with magic quotes off and to instead escape the data at runtime, as needed.

To check if your server has magic quotes "on" and you need to upgrade to 1.0.2:

* Temporary disable cookies.
* Write a text with quotes (") into a protected web form. Submit the form.
* Make sure that a question from ATC appears. Answer it correctly.
* If quotes (") are converted to slash-quotes (\"), you need to upgrade to 1.0.2
* Enable cookies back.
