Package html

Overview ▾

Package html provides functions for escaping and unescaping HTML text.

func EscapeString

func EscapeString(s string) string

EscapeString escapes special characters like "<" to become "&lt;". It escapes only five such characters: <, >, &, ' and ". UnescapeString(EscapeString(s)) == s always holds, but the converse isn't always true.

Example

&#34;Fran &amp; Freddie&#39;s Diner&#34; &lt;[email protected]&gt;

func UnescapeString

func UnescapeString(s string) string

UnescapeString unescapes entities like "&lt;" to become "<". It unescapes a larger range of entities than EscapeString escapes. For example, "&aacute;" unescapes to "á", as does "&#225;" and "&#xE1;". UnescapeString(EscapeString(s)) == s always holds, but the converse isn't always true.

Example

"Fran & Freddie's Diner" <[email protected]>
