giving the scriptProtect option a try.   will let you know how it goes.
thanks for you quick response!!
if you're talking about PCI-DSS 1.2 (6.6), then you have to use consecutive SCA or WAF, then you're compliant (nevertheless your code is vulnerable to XSS or not;-)

Anyway, if you want to be XSS-save, then check your input and reject anything which contains < or > or " or ' or =
If you input is feed to CSS or active scripting code (like JavaScript) more checks have to be done.
In CF7, adding scriptprotect alone does not help with PCI "cross-site scripting" compliance.
