Hello,
I have encoded the foreign characters.  i need help with decoding.

Dim tst As String = HtmlEncode(text)

Private Function HtmlEncode(ByVal Text As String) As String
        Dim i As Integer
        Dim sb As New StringBuilder
        'Split the string into a char array.
        Dim charCode As String
        Dim charArray() As Char = Text.ToCharArray()

        'Note: Remember zero based index. Also remember length minus one to prevent out of bounds exception
        For i = 0 To charArray.Length - 1 '(i have the content in the 'text')
            charCode = AscW(charArray(i))
            If charCode > 127 Then
                sb.Append(String.Format("&#{0};", charCode))
            Else
                sb.Append(Chr(charCode))
            End If
        Next
        Return sb.ToString
    End Function

any help would be appreciated.

Assuming you are working in a Web application. Use HTMLEncode and HTMLDecode method instead of writing your own.

Please do refer http://www.dotnetperls.com/httputility

If you want to perform encode/decode in Javascript side you can go for escape and unescape methods.
