    Description

      Description of the issue
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      1. Meeting creation fails if it has a special character, such as Malmö
      2. Meeting title has backslashes before apostrophes on the Meeting Info page & the server page

      Expected Behaviour
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      1. Special characters should be allowed in meeting names.
      2. Apostrophes should not have backslashes before them.

      Resolution
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      1. Using htmlspecialchars() instead of htmlentities()
      2. stripslashes() used to avoid the double backslashing which resulted in the apostrophe showing on the AC server's meeting name.

      Notes
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      There seems to be a problem with using '<' and '>' characters in the meeting name. It causes the meeting name to be truncated from that character. I don't believe this will be a common issue.
