Hi Guys

I need to convert HTML TO TEXT.

Below is an example of HTML.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML><HEAD>
<META content="text/html; charset=windows-1252" http-equiv=Content-Type>
<STYLE><!-- p { margin-top: 0em; margin-bottom: 0em; font-family:"","serif"; } --></STYLE>

<META name=GENERATOR content="MSHTML 10.00.9200.16750"></HEAD>
<BODY>
<P>Hi there</P>
<P>&nbsp;</P>
<P>Why does this have to be so complicated.</P>
<P>&nbsp;</P>
<P>Cheers</P>
<P>Shezad</P>
<P>&nbsp;</P>
<P>&nbsp;</P></BODY></HTML>

It looks like you can use the html agility pack (http://htmlagilitypack.codeplex.com/):

Dim plainText as String = ConvertToPlainText(MyhtmlString)
