VB: Why is this not working ?

The following source creates big files and doesn't change the extended characters.

Function TekstAsHTML(s As String) As String
 Dim N, I, strLength As Long
 Dim HTML As Variant
 HTML = Array("x", "x", "x", "‚", "ƒ", "„", "…", "†", "‡", "ˆ", "‰", "š", "‹", "œ", "x", "x", "x", "x", "‘", "’", "“", "”", "•", "–", "—", "˜", "™", "š", "›", "œ", "x", "x", "ÿ", " ", "¡", "¢", "£", "¤", "¥", "¦", "§", "¨", "©", "ª", "«", "¬", "­", "®", "¯", "°", "±", "²", "³", "´", "µ", "¶", "·", "¸", "¹", "º", "»", "¼", "½", "¾", "¿", "à", "á", "â", "ã", "ä", "å", "æ", "ç", "è", "é", "ê", "ë", "ì", "í", "î", "ï", "ð", "ñ", "ò", "ó", "ô", "õ", "ö", "×", "ø", "ù", "ú", "û", "ü", "ý", "þ", "ß", "à", "á", "â", "ã", "ä", "å", "æ", "ç", "è", "é", "ê", "ë", "ì", "í", "î", "ï", "ð", "ñ", "ò", "ó", "ô", "õ", "ö", "÷", "ø", "ù", "ú", "û", "ü", "ý", "þ", "ÿ")
 Dim varTmp As String
 strLength = Len(s)
 For I = 1 To strLength
  For N = 1 To 128
   If Mid(s, N, 1) = HTML(N) And HTML(N) <> "x" Then
     TekstAsHTML = TekstAsHTML + "&" + (N + 127) + ";"
     Exit For  'ingen grund til at fortsætte hvis vi har fundet en skyldig.
     TekstAsHTML = TekstAsHTML + Mid(s, N, 1)
   End If
  Next N
 Next I
End Function

For I = 1 To strLength
  For N = 1 To 128
    If Mid(s, I, 1) = HTML(N) And HTML(N) <> "x"
      TekstAsHTML = TekstAsHTML + "&" + (N + 127) + ";"
      Exit For 'ingen grund til at fortsætte hvis vi har fundet en skyldig.'
      TekstAsHTML = TekstAsHTML + Mid(s, I, 1)
    End If
  Next N
Next I

I.e., i guess you meant Mid(s, I, 1).

I did thanks!, but it's still creating a large file, and doesn't do what it's supposed to do!

That is because logic must be wrong, not implementation.

I guess what you're trying to do is substitute special chars with HTML escape sequences, but i'm not sure about it, because i can see a "&nbsp;" sequence there, and this make me confused.

If you tell me what your task exactly is, i could give an algorithm to work on (i cannot program VB).
