Converting HTML character entities to characters by BillyRayPreachersSon
Posted: 28 Jul 06

To convert HTML character entities to characters without having to use a lookup table, get the browser to do the work for you:

CODE

<html>
<head>
</head>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        var theStr = '&#305;&#287;&#252;&#351;&#246;&#231;&#304;&#286;&#220;&#350;&#214;&#199;';
        function convertHtmlEntitiesToCharacters() {
            var newDiv = document.createElement(newDiv);
            newDiv.innerHTML = theStr;
            alert('Entities:\n' + theStr + '\n\nCharacters:\n' + newDiv.innerHTML);
        }
    </script>
<body onload="convertHtmlEntitiesToCharacters();">
</body>
</html>
