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




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 stringToXml().

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