public interface SafeHtml extends java.io.Serializable
Note on usage: SafeHtml should be used to ensure user input is not executed in the browser. SafeHtml should not be used to sanitize input before sending it to the server: The server cannot rely on the type contract of SafeHtml values received from clients, because a malicious client could provide maliciously crafted serialized forms of implementations of this type that violate the type contract.
All implementing classes must maintain the class invariant (by design and
implementation and/or convention of use), that invoking
on any instance will return a string that is safe to assign to the
.innerHTML DOM property in a browser (or to use similarly in an "inner HTML"
context), in the sense that doing so must not cause execution of script in
Furthermore, values of this type must be composable, i.e. for any two values
B of this type,
A.asString() + B.asString()
must itself be a value that satisfies the SafeHtml type constraint. This
requirement implies that for any value
A of this type, if
A.asString() includes HTML markup, the string must end in an "inner HTML"
context and not inside a tag or attribute. For example, a value of
<div style=" or
<img src=" would not satisfy the SafeHtml contract.
This is because concatenating such strings with a second value that itself
does not contain script-executing HTML markup can result in an overall string
that does. For example, if
<img src=", the resulting string may result in script execution.
All implementations must implement equals() and hashCode() to behave consistently with the result of asString().equals() and asString.hashCode().
Implementations must not return
