[Zope] making a string html safe

Hi. I'm trying to html quote a zope object's ID, so that I can have
spaces within it without erroring out. Clearly Zope's code handles this,
as you can create objects with spaces in their IDs etc... Where does
this get done? A glance at OFS/Folder.py yields no constructor (only
class initializer). Where does that take place in zope's inheritance

Failing all of that, are there any python standard library functions
that can handle this, or anything in zope? cgi.escape (which is called
by the html_quote in the DocumentTemplate module) doesn't do this

Many thanks.
