HTMLEncodeEx - Applies HTML encoding rules to the specified Text

' Applies HTML encoding rules to the specified Text and returns the result

' Optionally specify if we're encoding a HREF link and the character
' to use for encoding - the default is the standard ampersand
' e.g. Server.HTMLEncode
' i.e. Call MsgBox(HTMLEncodeEx("<Sample HTML encoded text>"))
