Priceless String manipulation Intellij plugin

ctrl-alt-S, then "Plugins" search for "String Manipulations"; install and reboot.

for instance, if you need to "escape XML" (that is transform reserve chars in "% bla ;" sequences :

File/new scratch file (or ctrl-alt-shift-ins), paste your XML, select all, right click "String manipulation", "escape xml"

Normally I used Notepad++ and the "XML Tools Plugin", but this seems more useful.
