Bug is minor or may be not a bug at all. But I was really puzzled for some time when my javascript confirmation stopped working while dealing with particularly HK417 12' weapons on my website. I figured out it has this singlequote. I killed this quote in my database, but I guess it can cause somebody trouble someday again.
Btw, it's the only weapon with a singlequote in name in the whole Config Browser weaponset. :)

from config:

displayName = "HK417 12'' Shortdot";

Not sure if we can change it, since using " after 12 would break it. Confirmed working substitutes for double single quotas, anyone?

The problem is in your code, always escape database insertion and before you render the data.

Rocko, normally you'd escape with '\', not sure if that works here.
displayName = "HK417 12\" Shortdot";

No problem, I know I should have escaped it, but since it's the only one instance of a singlequote in weapons names in the whole config I decided to inform you. Just in case it matters.
