Text To Html

The following code is working proberly. The only problem is that if a string is 20 chars long, this function will only return the 20 first chars of the translated string.

Input  = "der var en gang"
Output = "der var&nb"

Function TextAsHTML2(TextToConvert As String)
 Dim N, I As Long
 Dim FoundOne As Boolean
 Dim ExtChar, HTML As Variant
 Dim strTextBuffer As String
 'Ext Lowercase
 'Ext Uppercase
 HTML = Array("­", " ", "©", "®", "™", "—", "–", "¹", "²", "³", "¶", "·", "«", "»", "¼", "½", "¾", "£", _
              "á", "â", "æ", "à", "å", "ã", "ä", "ç", "é", "ê", "è", "ð", "ë", "í", "î", "ì", "ï", "ñ", "ó", "ô", "ò", "ø", "õ", "ö", "ß", "þ", "ú", "û", "ù", "ü", "ý", "ÿ", _
              "Á", "Â", "Æ", "À", "Å", "Ã", "Ä", "Ç", "Ð", "É", "Ê", "È", "Ë", "Í", "Î", "Ì", "Ï", "Ñ", "Ó", "Ô", "Ò", "Ø", "Õ", "Ö", "Þ", "Ú", "Û", "Ù", "Ü", "Ý")
 ExtChar = Array("shy", "nbsp", "copy", "#174", "#153", "#151", "#150", "#185", "#178", "#179", "#182", "#183", "#171", "#187", "#188", "#189", "#190", "#163", _
                 "aacute", "acirc", "aelig", "agrave", "aring", "atilde", "auml", "ccedil", "eacute", "ecirc", "egrave", "eth", "euml", "iacute", "icirc", "igrave", "iuml", "ntilde", "oacute", "ocirc", "ograve", "oslash", "otilde", "ouml", "szlig", "thorn", "uacute", "ucirc", "ugrave", "uuml", "yacute", "yuml", _
                 "Aacute", "Acirc", "AElig", "Agrave", "Aring", "Atilde", "Auml", "Ccedil", "ETH", "Eacute", "Ecirc", "Egrave", "Euml", "Iacute", "Icirc", "Igrave", "Iuml", "Ntilde", "Oacute", "Ocirc", "Ograve", "Oslash", "Otilde", "Ouml", "THORN", "Uacute", "Ucirc", "Ugrave", "Uuml", "Yacute")
 strTextBuffer = ""
 For I = 1 To Len(TextToConvert)
  FoundOne = False
  For N = 1 To UBound(HTML)
   If Mid(TextToConvert, I, 1) = HTML(N) Then
     strTextBuffer = strTextBuffer & "&" & ExtChar(N) & ";"
     FoundOne = True
     Exit For  'no reason to continue if we find one.
   End If
  Next N
  If Not FoundOne Then strTextBuffer = strTextBuffer & Mid(TextToConvert, I, 1)
 Next I
 TextAsHTML2 = strTextBuffer
End Function

The answer is in your immeadiate window!

Try this instead then:

MsgBox "The HTML is:" & TextAsHTML2("der var en gang")

Your function works fine.  Try this, put at the beginning of  the Form_Load event of the main form:

   Debug.Print TextAsHTML2("der var en gang")

and test...

I tried that, but I only get "Stop statement encountered" from a message box.

I have one comment, if anyone would like to use the code don't make it replace your " " with " ". Your webpage will look very funny!
