Replace Letters in String with Numbers

I need to have a simple JavaScript form on a page that a user can enter a MAC Adress and have it 'translated' to the numbers the user would push on their telephone keypad to enter the number.  Very similar to a 1-800 number when the telephone number spells out a word - 1-800-GET-BEER would be 1-800-438-2337.  In this case however, it is much simpler as there are far fewer letters.

If someone could give me the whole html page from <html> to </html> that would be awesome!

Here are the basic rules for this translation:

i.      0  9 = 0  9
ii.      A = 22
iii.      B = 222
iv.      C = 2222
v.      D = 33
vi.      E = 333
vii.      F = 3333

So if I typed into the form:  000b8200e395  I would get the number -->  0002228200333395

The 'B' was converted to '222' and the 'E' was converted to '333' and the string was put back together.


Thanks!!!

Zvonko's answer is better. I was never really good at Regular expressions.
Thanks :)
