Hi folks.

This might be a case of a dumb question, but here goes anyway.  :-)

I have two strings, A and B.  Is it better to use:

   string:concat(A, B)

or

    A ++ B

when combining them to create a new string?  I'm writing some code
that generates a chunk of HTML.  I know that using ++ on big lists is
regarded as a "no-no", but is it acceptable here?

Thanks.

Paul.
