I was shocked to learn that none of the packages in the Kepler platform contains a function to escape special characters in HTML, i.e. to replace '<', '>', and '&' with "&lt;", "&gt;", and "&amp;", respectively. I suppose the most logical place to put such a function would be in CGILua. This is especially surprising given that CGILua is apparently one of hte oldest packages in the Kepler platform, going back to Lua 3.2. It begs the question: How much serious web development has actuallly been done using Kepler in general and CGILua in particular?
