How to make xss safe strings

Hi,

How can I make a string XSS safe? Will
simply .replace('<','&lt;').replace('>','&gt;').... do the work? Or
are there some other issues to take into account?. Is there already a
function in python which will do this for me.

Regards
Roopesh

For HTML, use the cgi.escape function.
