How do i replace multiple instances of %20 in a filename ?

At present i'm using the following Javascript to replace %20 with  " " (a blank space):

hs.captionEval = 'this.content.src.substring(this.content.src.lastIndexOf("/")).replace("/", "").replace(".jpg", "").replace("%20", " ")';

It works but it only replaces the first %20 rather than all of them, so that a long image filename now reads:
Hello to%20you%20my%20dear%20sir

How do i fix this?

Many thanks
