The ISML function stringToHtml() returns the result of a string expression after converting any special characters, such as <, > and & into their appropriate HTML encoding sequences. For details see Encoding Expression Results.

stringToHtml(<operation>);

3 Example

This example shows that although the automatic encoding of <ISPRINT>has been disabled by setting encoding to off, you can encode the result of an expression by explicit use of the function stringToHtml().

<ISPRINT value = "#stringToHtml('<<<')#" encoding = "off">
// returned string: "<<<"
