What does the html function do?

I’ve noticed some templates use a | html function. In the docs, there’s information about the safeHTML, safeHTMLattr, htmlEscape, and htmlUnescape functions but I can’t see any documentation for the html function.

What does html do, and in what way is it different from safeHTML?

Great - that makes sense.

I would also be intrested in an answer. Did you get one?

There was a reply, but it was deleted, and it may be due to some action of the poster. I’ll ask the mod. If it is unrelated to the answer, I’ll copy and paste here shortly. :slight_smile:

AFAIK html was the original safeHTML

It would seem that this is actually the opposite in that it strips HTML tags from a string. Can we get any confirmation on this?


Returns the escaped HTML equivalent of the textual
representation of its arguments. This function is unavailable
in html/template, with a few exceptions.

I love the last sentence.

Right, that’s helpful. :wink:
