IIS 6.0

The IServer::HTMLEncode method applies HTML encoding to the specified string. For more information, see the Server.HTMLEncode method of the Server object.

   BSTR bstrIn,
   BSTR* pbstrEncoded


[in] A binary string that contains the text to be encoded.


[retval] [out] Points to a binary string that receives the encoded text.

If your component returns the encoded text to a browser, the browser will display it in HTML format, rather than in plain text. For example, if the bstrIn contained the following string, < >, the pbstrEncoded parameter would contain the HTML code for those characters, &lt &gt. If your component returned this to a browser, however, it would display it as < >.
