Custom field values and special characters

Do you guys filter out double quotes (") from custom field values? (If so what other chars are disallowed?)

We have a custom field that requires the inch abbrev char (") but no matter how we escape it in the posted string it gets removed.

The custom field is defined as Text.

    We are having issues with special characters such as inch (") and ampersands (&) when searching for items in inventory. A 5" knife becomes a jumble of unrelated characters and the item is not found even though it is the proper description.
