unicode from a rev cgi

I have a rev cgi that saves text from a form in a web page.

I am testing the input of a language that requires unicode into that  
form
(the example I am using is the Greek word for small horse "μικρό  
άλογο").

The cgi saves that text to a text file from which I can retrieve it.

It looks like this after I get the url that contains it from the server:
%26%23956%3B%26%23953%3B%26%23954%3B%26%23961%3B%26%23972%3B+ 
%26%23940%3B%26%23955%3B%26%23959%3B%26%23947%3B%26%23959%3B


After  I urldecode the above, it looks like this:

μικρό άλογο

How would I change the unicode shown above back into the original
Greek text?

[those appear to be the correct chars - if I do this locally and then  
save those
Greek words with the htmlText, they are the same items (in addition to  
the
html formating tags, of course)]
