A Xojo module for encoding/decoding HTML entities
Inspired by the HTMLEntities module originally created by Thom McGrath. Rewritten to use faster Dictionaries and I have migrated as much of the code as is currently possible to the new Xojo framework.
Certain characters need to be encoded if they are to be displayed in a HTML document. These are known as HTML entities. This module will convert these characters into their respective HTML symbols and back again.
using HTMLEncode dim raw as Text = "<p>Copyright © 2016</p>" dim encoded as Text = raw.EncodeEntities() ' result is: ' <p>Copyright © 2016</p>
