Returns the translation table used by htmlspecialchars and htmlentities (PHP 4, PHP 5)
array get_html_translation_table ( [int table [, int quote_style]] )

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


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.



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


And as in the htmlspecialchars() and htmlentities() functions you can optionally specify the quote_style you are working with. The default is ENT_COMPAT mode. See the description of these modes in htmlspecialchars().

Return Values

Returns the translation table as an array.


Example 2411. Translation Table Example

= get_html_translation_table(HTML_ENTITIES);
$str = "Hallo & <Frau> & Krдmer";
$encoded = strtr($str, $trans);

The $encoded variable will now contain: "Hallo &amp; &lt;Frau&gt; &amp; Kr&auml;mer".
