$dataobject->Content cutting off with special chars?

Hey guys,

I'm looping through a flat data file and pushing the content into new data objects like so:

$Property = new DetailPropertyPage();
$Property->Content = htmlspecialchars($dataFileRow[25]);
$Property->publish('Stage', 'Live');

The content is consistently cutting off at the same point. When I inspect the data in the flat file, it's cutting off as soon as it hits an un-encoded pound (£) symbol. So I added htmlspecialchars(); as demonstrated above but this hasn't solved the problem. Does anyone know what's going wrong here?
