Addresses for other countries


I am building an app for use in South East Asia. Right now I am working on the portion for Thailand.

The addresses here use a backslash alot. For example: 55/8 Sukhumvit Soi 11, Bangkok.

The problem is when a user inputs this the D.B. will save it as in some how gets converted during the save to read: 55, 8 Sukhumvit Soi 11. Using a comma instead of the backslash.

This is not ideal as the user when inputting this will see the change and try to continuously change it to read correctly with a back slash instead of a comma.

This will inevitably cause a lot of issues.

Does anybody know why this would happen so that I could figure a way to save the address the way the user inputs into the input element?
