I am having a problem on the output form escaping a single quote as in typing in the input field Alex's It won't escape the apostrophe or single quote on output and gives me a syntax error. I understand that this \' is to escape the single quote. What am I doing wrong in my below script? Thank you in advance...

<p><strong>Position:</strong><br>
<? echo "\'$_POST[position]\'"; ?></p>
