don;t think htmlspecialchars converts the @ symbol: http://us2.php.net/manual/en/function.htmlspecialchars.php
you sure you're not using htmlentities(http://us2.php.net/manual/en/function.htmlentities.php)?

function myurlencode ( $TheVal )
return urlencode (str_replace("@","%40",$TheVal));
this could help you maybe?

Why do you need to filter out HTML characters anyway? You only need to escape data before you output it (for this sort of validation anyway; you still need to check for things like SQL injections in certain cases).
