HTML Encode

HTML encode is the process of converting certain characters in a string into their HTML character entities. This is often necessary when displaying user-generated content, such as comments or messages, that may contain special characters that could cause issues with the HTML structure or break the layout of a webpage. Characters that frequently need to be encoded include >, &, and ". Encoding these characters prevents them from being interpreted as HTML or JavaScript code, which can help to prevent security issues such as cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. There are various online tools and libraries available for HTML encoding, such as the html.escape() function in Python or the HtmlEncode method in C#.
