Part Number E10726-01
Formats a string for use in XML.
This function replaces non-alphanumeric characters with the correct XML sequence that represents the character. For example, the ampersand "&" character is replaced with the "&" sequence.
When using a double-quote character within a string, a backslash "\" must precede the double-quote to display it as a character. If the backslash is not used as an escape flag, the double-quote is interpreted as ending the string.
