Replace all instances

Hello, I'm trying to replace all instances of, for example, the > sign in a string.

I know I can do a string.replace(">",">").  But this only replaces once instance.  What is the best way that I can replace all instances?

I've tried, but for some reason its not working and my text has alot of amp; in it after its done processing.

foreach (char c in value)
       value = Replace(">", ">");

HttpServerUtility.HtmlEncode is exactly what I needed, thank you.
Hello, I am using the Server.HtmlEncode but for some reason if a wierd string like "!@#$%^&*()_+-={}|[]\:";'<>?,./" (without the quotes) is passed in, the html is not structured correctly.

Do you have any other suggestions?
