is an IE and Opera feature, not firefox

test your own http://www_ush_it/team/ascii/img_src_test.html'xss')%3C/script%3E
this is universal

htmlentities or whitelist prce match are the correct way to handle xss

$queryinput = 'www_ush_it';
if (!preg_match('|^[a-z0-9\.]{1,255}$|', $queryinput)) exit();
