What's the best way to handle html <TEXTAREA> content from the form to the db and back again?

(OP)
Online research/comments seem to go a couple of directions. That is the consensus of you php guru's?

If one is currently using php v5.5 and plans to move to 7.x in the future, would there be any significant difference?

Thanks for all suggestions.bigears

RE: What's the best way to handle html <TEXTAREA> content from the form to the db and back again?

"best" way to handle it in what respect?

But based on the information at hand;

"escape" any 'special' characters (apostrophes for example) before storing and remove any escaping that was done when displaying the text in whatever form you intend to..
