Source code

Since this script is meant to be an online tool only, it hasn't been coded for easy addition into other scripts. Thus the source code is only available upon request. The script is licenced under the BSD Licence.

Version 1.2

This tool will take any string of characters from any charset and output them in a format which can be pasted as-is into the code of an HTML document. UTF-8 translated text can only be pasted into documents using the UTF-8 charset, while HTML Entities should display the proper characters under any charset.

Although HTML Entities are more portable with respect to HTML documents, it is recommended to use UTF-8 encoded bytes since a wider spectrum of applications (not just web browsers) can decode and display them.
