htmlspecialchars is just replacing < with &lt;, > with &gt; and & with
&amp; (optionally " with &quot; and ' with &#039; as well).

It's a trivial application of the replace algorithm to the world of HTML
and XML. I'm not sure the string algorithm lib is the right place for
it, maybe an XML lib would be better.
