* email@example.com | | I know I must have just overlooked it somewhere, but does anyone | know of a function that will take plain text and make it safe for | XML? That is, given a string like 'This is an <example> of unusable | text", convert it to 'This is an <example> of unusable text'? The function escape in xml.utils will do this for you. Look at the doco string for documentation. --Lars M.
