Topic: syntax question

Hi all,
in the view I often write line that have <%=h table.field %>.
Can anybody tell me what the h stands for?
Thank you for the help!

Re: syntax question

It's a method which escapes the HTML. It prevents some security vulnerabilities like Cross Site Scripting. I have a railscasts episode on the topic.

Thank you for the answer!  We were looking at that and could not figure it out if our lives depended on it.
