HTML entities to text

Post by petertohen » Mon Jan 22, 2018 2:30 pm

Hi Simon,

TextPipe has a filter to convert Numeric HTML entities to text.

This is fine as far as it goes, but rather narrow in scope, as it only works for numerical entities.

Please consider to enhance TextPipe to provide a filter to convert all XML & HTML entities to Unicode.

This would greatly improve the usefulness of TextPipe.

Hi Peter,

There is already a filter that converts many entities to numeric values etc.

If you wish to extend it we are happy to include it in a future release.

Simon
