Fields

Auto Auto Auto Auto 0

Use automatic behavior. The Unicode encoding behavior is determined by current application's target Framework. For .NET Framework 4.5 and later, the Unicode encoding behavior is strict.

Compat Compat Compat Compat 2

Use compatible behavior. Specifies that individual UTF-16 surrogate code points are output as-is when one of HtmlEncode methods is called. For example, given a string "\uD84C\uDFB4" (or "\U000233B4"), the output of HtmlEncode is "\uD84C\uDFB4" (the input is not encoded).

Strict Strict Strict Strict 1

Use strict behavior. Specifies that individual UTF-16 surrogate code points are combined into a single code point when one of the HtmlEncode methods is called. For example, given the input string "\uD84C\uDFB4" (or "\U000233B4"), the output of the HtmlEncode methods is "𣎴".

If the input is a malformed UTF-16 string (it contains unpaired surrogates, for example), the bad code points will be replaced with U+FFFD (Unicode replacement char) before being HTML-encoded.
