Yes. Most "connector" software includes a feature which auto-magically 
escapes all variable-data - a valuable safety feature!

I've been experimenting by going further and providing app.devs with 
functions/methods, a mini-API if you will. Given that many?most don't 
like having to deal with SQL, the extra 'insulation' boosts my personal 
popularity...
(and I need as much of that as I can get!)
