This is a very interesting topic.
Being a lazy person, historically I've let the engine do the work by
setting the htmlText of a field and then getting that field's text.
But given the overhead of field access, that might not benchmark as well
as doing it in a variable as described here.
Are there any downsides to this approach? For example, how does it
account for "<" and ">" which may appear in quoted strings or comments?
