HttpUtility.HtmlDecode Method (String, TextWriter)

Converts a string that has been HTML-encoded into a decoded string, and sends the decoded string to a TextWriter output stream.

Namespace:  System.Web
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public static void HtmlDecode(
	string s,
	TextWriter output
)

Parameters

s
Type: System.String

The string to decode.

output
Type: System.IO.TextWriter

A TextWriter stream of output.

If characters such as blanks and punctuation are passed in an HTTP stream, they might be misinterpreted at the receiving end. HTML encoding converts characters that are not allowed in HTML into character-entity equivalents; HTML decoding reverses the encoding. For example, when embedded in a block of text, the characters < and > are encoded as &lt; and &gt; for HTTP transmission.

To encode or decode values outside of a web application, use the WebUtility class.
