I had a problem with foreign chars in CMS inputs being converted to entities unnecessarily, and the cure was auto_encode_entities = 0; The docs suggest this can be given an array as a value. Is that associative or not? eg
array('name' => false, 'content' => true); or just
array('name', 'content'); where inclusivity is assumed true? From testing, it seems safer to set to a boolean.
