It would be great if the bslCore.brs library had a built-in method for decoding html entities like & or numeric entities like <. If a developer is using a xml feed to generate their channel's contents then it will most likely contain a few html entities. As far as I know there isn't a way to decode those entities using a native BrightScript function or library. You can use this script to decode any html entity including hex entities. Any chance that a similar set of functions could be included in a future version of the bslCore library?
