Asa Dotzler writes in with pointers to a couple of interesting articles at scottandrews.com and freshmeat.net. He says the Scott Andrews article is definitely worth reading and if you're looking for something of a lower 'slashdot-esque' quality then check out the rant at freshmeat.

It's a MozillaZine problem, I think it might be a problem with magicquotes since the server must be able to store and interpret strings with single and double quotes in them, which it also uses to encapsulate the strings. So to prevent confusion the scripts "escape" the quotes with slashes so it could tell the difference between the the quote in the strong and the string used to start and end the quote.
But as I said, it's a server problem 8P
