Converting text to HTML with Visual Basic

I have found this interesting article on CodeProject where they explain how to create a method that converts a String to HTML format by invoking the HttpUtility.HtmlEncode method, but the explanation is C# only.

This approach is okay in Web projects, and I want to provide a Visual Basic translation:

        Public Shared Function HtmlEncode(text As String) As String
            Dim chars As Char() = HttpUtility.HtmlEncode(text).ToCharArray()
            Dim result As New System.Text.StringBuilder(text.Length + CInt(text.Length * 0.1))

            For Each c As Char In chars
                Dim value As Integer = Convert.ToInt32(c)
                If value > 127 Then
                    result.AppendFormat("&#{0};", value)
                End If

            Return result.ToString()
        End Function

It can be useful
