Decode HTML entities from the Strings

Sometimes we need to decode HTML entities from any specific strings in PHP. Basically it’s more used for retrieve HTML entities from a MySQL cell.? To Convert all HTML entities to their applicable characters there is one function available that is called html_entity_decode().

html_entity_decode($YourStrings)

Example:

<?php
$orig?=?"I'll?"love"?the?<b>girl</b> very much";

$a?=?htmlentities($orig);

$b?=?html_entity_decode($a);

echo?$a;?//?I'll?&quot;love&quot;?the?&lt;b&gt;girl&lt;/b&gt; very much

echo?$b;?//?I'll?"love"?the?<b>girl</b> very much?>
