I put together a quick little HTML Encoder for myself using JavaScript. I find I am frequently searching for an online encoder when I am writing my posts. The code is below and I find it entertaining that it was encoded for display using the code itself:).


<script> function encode() { var theHTML = document.getElementById('rawArea').value; theHTML= theHTML .replace(/&/g, '&') .replace(/"/g, '"') .replace(/'/g, ''') .replace(/</g, '<') .replace(/>/g, '>'); document.getElementById('encodedArea').value=theHTML; } </script>

<form id="rawForm"> <textarea id="rawArea" rows="5" cols="40"></textarea> <input value="Encode" type="button" onclick="encode(); return false;"/> </form>

<form id="encodedForm"> <textarea id="encodedArea" rows="5" cols="40"></textarea> </form>
