Just means those htmlentities calls need to be made UTF-8 aware. Really
wish php supported function overloading. Guess I should just write a
new function that does the htmlentities($strung, ENT_COMPAT, 'UTF-8')
automatically so I don't have to type that extra stuff every time.
As for the "why"... mainly because I just don't trust user input (esp.
data from the listing providers).
