    As you can see the saved string has html code within, and when the html_entity_decode is performed upon the string this is being included within the character count.

    With a slight adjustment to the code by adding – ENT_QUOTES,”UTF-8″ we get the correct amount of characters within the string as seem by a webpage after decode.
