attributeEncode(dataStr)

This function encodes all instances of the following in the argument string dataStr to numeric HTML entities (e.g. like '
'):

For example, if the source dataStr is "this & that":

$MyString = attributeEncode("this & that") outputs "this & that".

An older export code equivalent was ^opmlEncode()^; the latter is deprecated in favour of the form ^value(attributeEncode(…))^.
