escapeHTML(dataStr)

escapeHTML converts HTML and XML special characters in string dataStr to HTML/XML entities. For example, '<' is replaced by '&lt;' and '&' is replaced by '&amp;'.

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

$MyString = escapeHTML("this & that") outputs "this &amp; that".

See also attributeEncode(), especially if working with XML strings.
