  • Speech-mark turns to " in result of a query

    I have this query which trims the thread-title of the latest posts after another query fetches the latest posts. Everything works well except I've noticed that if this query trims the thread-title at a speech-mark ( " ) , instead of displaying the speech-mark in the result it shows &quot... instead. But if I increase the cut-off by a few more characters then the speech mark is displayed correctly. How can I make the query display the speech-mark without it displaying '&quot...' at certain lengths of cutoff?

    Here is the query to trim the thread-title:

    PHP Code:
    if (strlen($row['thread_title']) > $vbulletin->options['latest_trimplusthree']) 
    // adds the cutoff ... with substr  
    $row['thread_title'] = substr($row['thread_title'], 0$vbulletin->options['latest_trim']) . '...'
