New converter tool added

Not exactly an accessibility tool, but you may find Quick Escape useful as a web developer. Converts HTML to escaped characters suitable for pasting into form textarea inputs. Inspiration for this came after reading the Joe Clark thing on Slashdot, in which one person wrote:

Even worse, Slashdot’s Plain Old Text mode doesn’t even let me paste that HTML in. I have to go through by hand and manually escape each and every into < and > . What’s the point of a plain text mode that doesn’t know how to escape stuff for me. I can’t just type Plain Old Text - instead I have to know all about escape codes and enter them myself?
