I have encoded HTML entities, and I want to convert them to text.
This is the HTML encoded text:
And this is decoded text (Persian Language):
I want to convert
& to &,
" to " etc.Is there a function in c# that could do that without writing all the options manually?
I have an app that builds XML, the text nodes values are coming from the users.
How would I HTML encode that input to avoid bad characters?
Preferably looking for a built in solution in Action Script.
I have a problem with restricting malicious content in a field which can accept any input from the user.
I have to encode that field and save it in the database - see examples:
<space> is saved as
2nd example (malicious text)
"><svg/onload=prompt(1)>is saved as
Now in reports I have to decode that into actual text, but the second text is malicious script now. What should I do?
Is there any other way to stop malicious text on both client and server side?
I have a form that contains html entities in an input field, something like:
<input type="hidden" name="foo" value="<?php htmlspecialchars($foo) ?>" />
$foo takes in the value of something like "
<b>foo</b>", it seems that when the form is posted to the PHP script, the value of
$_POST['foo'] is already decoded...so does that mean I don't need to use
htmlspecialchars_decode to convert
$_POST['foo'] back to its original form
Thanks for any inputs on this issue.
