- escape ascii htmlentities
- 3 (after 3 ratings)
The built-in escape filter only works with certain characters. It works great in environments where you can declare your charset (UTF-8). However, not everything can handle anything outside of the ASCII charset.
This replaces all non-ASCII characters with their encoded value as
® for ®, for example.
