MakeSafeHTMLText routine from Code Snippets database updated for Unicode text
The MakeSafeHTMLText routine has been modified so that characters with an ordinal value greater than 255 are now replaced with numeric character entities. In the previous version the characters were passed through unchanged, which is not acceptable when there is the possibility that the routine's output will be stored in a web page for which the character encoding is not known.
