I hope you're doing well. I have a question about the PHP htmlentities() function. I have been reading about it in the PHP documentation, but I'm still a bit confused about its usage.
I understand that htmlentities() is used to convert characters to their corresponding HTML entities. This is particularly useful when handling user input, to prevent any potential security vulnerabilities, such as cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. However, I'm unsure about how to properly use this function.
Could someone please provide me with an example that demonstrates the correct usage of htmlentities()? I would love to see some code that shows how to use it effectively, and perhaps share any best practices or pitfalls to avoid when implementing this function.
Thank you in advance for your help!
