Code Examples package main import ( "fmt" "html" ) func main() { const s = `"Fran & Freddie's Diner" ` fmt.Println(html.EscapeString(s)) } package main import ( "fmt" "html" ) func main() { const s = `"Fran & Freddie's Diner" <tasty@example.com>` fmt.Println(html.UnescapeString(s)) }
Package-Level Functions (total 2)
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.
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.
