Oops, in my first encodechar() function, the else clause should read:

      import cgi
      return cgi.escape( c, True )

Or some equivalent, in order to insure that &, <, and > get encoded.

My second example which uses htmlentitdefs doesn't need that
since those characters are already in the htmlentitydefs.
