Converting ISO-8959-1 character references to displayable text is a snap:
If field 1 contains this:
Dont give up & call it quits.
...I can get the plain text like this:
set the htmlText of fld 2 to the text of fld 1
get the text of fld 2
But what do I do when the data I'm working with contains hex character
Don’t give up & call it quits.
I have a bunch of XML files that are UTF-8 encoded and chock full o' hex
character references like that, and doing a replace on each or hunting
them down to do a baseConvert would be inefficient.
I'd like to think some combination of Unicode functions/properties would
do the trick, but alas I'm too braindead to come up with the winning
