Here my concern folx:
is there a function in ASP/VB.NET or elsewhere that will render special HTML characters.
Basically i'm looking for a magic fuction that will  return "shanté & Mórris"
when MagicFunction ("shanté & Mórris") is called.
I hope you get the idea...

Hi the_bachelor,

I'm a PHP programmer that just loves to use htmlentities(), but I did a quick search on Google. From http://forums.asp.net/thread/892355.aspx, we can see that you can use


if you have ASP.NET

I don't know if there is anything native like that for ASP itself though...

Just in case anybody would land on this. I was looking for Server.HtmlDecode("string").
