AntiSamy has several actions you can take with tags, but escaping them
is not one of them.

It's something we could add in a future version, but I'd like to
understand what you're hoping to gain by escaping tags through
AntiSamy. You could just HTML Entity Encode the input text without
running it through AntiSamy and achieve the same effect with lower

Are you trying to selectively escape some tags? Can you provide a use
case for this functionality?
