get_html_translation_table

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

get_html_translation_tableReturns the translation table used by htmlspecialchars() and htmlentities()

Description

array get_html_translation_table ([ int $table = HTML_SPECIALCHARS [, int $quote_style = ENT_COMPAT ]] )

get_html_translation_table() will return the translation table that is used internally for htmlspecialchars() and htmlentities() with the default charset.

Note:

Special characters can be encoded in several ways. E.g. " can be encoded as ", " or &#x22. get_html_translation_table() returns only the most common form for them.

Parameters

table

There are two new constants (HTML_ENTITIES, HTML_SPECIALCHARS) that allow you to specify the table you want.

quote_style

Like the htmlspecialchars() and htmlentities() functions you can optionally specify the quote_style you are working with. See the description of these modes in htmlspecialchars().

Return Values

Returns the translation table as an array.

Examples

Example #1 Translation Table Example

<?php
$trans 
get_html_translation_table(HTML_ENTITIES);
$str "Hallo & <Frau> & Krämer";
$encoded strtr($str$trans);

echo 
$encoded;
?>

The above example will output:

Hallo &amp; &lt;Frau&gt; &amp; Kr&auml;mer
