do you believe that replacement of one char in a string with two chars costs
more than encoding the string?

David.

btw, I believe that prepared statements may solve that issue the best way,
that's in case you do not use JdbcOdbcBridge, from my experience I studied
that it doesn't update varchar fields properly, make sure it won't happen to
you.

Good luck!   :o)
