I have an ASP file that gets as parameter a utf-8 string of a hebrew word ( format is %D7%90 in utf-8 for the character that is %E0 in hebrew encoding ).
I would like to take that string which is in utf-8 and with ASP code convert it to a hebrew encoding string.  How can this be done in script ( prefereably without using outside components ), a code snippet would be appreciated.

<H1>Character Set Recognition</H1>
<BR CLEAR=ALL>
<P>Internet Explorer uses the character set specified for a document to determine how to translate the bytes in the document into characters on the screen or paper. By default, Internet Explorer uses the character set specified in the HTTP content type returned by the server to determine this translation. If this parameter is not given, Internet Explorer uses the character set specified by the <A HREF="../html/META.htm#META">META</A> element in the document. It uses the user's preferences if no <B>META</B> element is given.

<P>You can use the <A HREF="../html/META.htm#META">META</A> element to explicitly set the character set for a document. In this case, you set the <A HREF="../html/META.htm#HTTP_EQUIV_">HTTP-EQUIV=</A> attribute to "Content-Type" and specify a character set identifier in the <A HREF="../html/META.htm#CONTENT_">CONTENT=</A> attribute. For example, the following <B>META</B> element identifies Windows-1251 as the character set for the document.

<PRE>&lt;META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type"
  CONTENT="text/html; CHARSET=Windows-1251"&gt;
</PRE>

<P>As long as you place the <A HREF="../html/META.htm#META">META</A> element before the <A HREF="../html/BODY.htm#BODY">BODY</A> element, it affects the whole document, including the <A HREF="../html/TITLE.htm#TITLE">TITLE</A> element. For clarity it should appear as the first element after <A HREF="../html/HEAD.htm#HEAD">HEAD</A> so that all readers know the encoding before the first displayable is parsed. Note that the <B>META</B> element applies to the document containing it. This means, for example, that a compound document (a document consisting of two or more documents in a set of frames) can use different character sets in different frames.
