Returns the text form of the HTML that was passed in.

Some characters in HTML have special meaning and the browser does not render them literally.  For example, the browser interprets any text enclosed by angle brackets (< and >) as an HTML tag that describes the formatting of the text. To display HTML code literally, including all of the syntax, it must be HTML encoded when sent to the browser.  The application replaces certain characters that have special meaning in HTML with other characters.  For example, the application replaces a greater than sign (>) with &gt;, replaces the less than sign (<) with &lt;, and replaces the ampersand sign (&) with &amp;.
