Summary14572: Impossible to manually edit an answer when one the the fields contains a quote (' or ")

There is still a bug when an answer contains a simple or double quote.
When I want to edit this answer, some special characters are obviously not correctly escaped.
In my exemple (see joined file), the field {TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_5} is : Saint-Ouen l'Aumône
So it contains a simple quote.
When editing this answer, the field is broken. Same problem with double quotes and with special characters I think.
The only solution is to manually update the database... just impossible!
(and surprisingly, there is no problem when editing a participant)

Steps To Reproduce

Just create an answer containing a special character (quote)

Yes, it's in admin edit, when u list the answers and edit one of them (button with a pen icon).

In my example, it's an equation, automatically prefiled with an attribute from the tokens.

And ur right, I've didn't noticed but no problem when it's a simple text field.
