Hi there;

I am trying to test html escape in my code. Is there any you can provide me? Tricky ones would be appreciated.

No SQL injection code is necessary.

Regards.

It is not very clear what you are asking for.  If you need url rncoding the information is at:
http://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_urlencode.asp

If you are looking for the HTML entities codes they are here:

If itis something else you are looking for, then you will need to provide more detail.

i'm not sure I understand then...

Do you want to take a string of non standard characters and escape them? if so, just copy and paste some from the link I sent

thats what I thought. since thats the case, just create some dummy html, add some of those characters in a div or span or p tag, and see if it works properly

not sure if this'll come across or if EE's editor will escape it

example:
<p>æ</p>
<span>¿</span>
<div>©</div>

Open in new window

@jazzIIIlove,

Is there some point to this; or you just got bored and thought you would post a time waster?

Instead of going in circles with "tricky" why don't you just tell us what you are trying to do or give us some kind of requirement.

That's a pretty vague request. And since you're not really answering my questions I previously posted (such as whether or not you copied and pasted the html I suggested, I don't think you'll get much help here without knowing the context in which you're looking to test it.
