Converting ISO 8859 entities

Recommended Posts

Since I have 1 idea I'll just blurt out the qiestion:

What is the most efficent way to do entity conversions?

I'm finding that Window Media Player 'wpl' playlist files convert 'special' characters to their ISO 8859 equivelents:

>'< becomes >&apos;<

The problem is when I get the filenames, these need to be converted back to the character otherwise:

c:\80&apos;s tunes\ABC - How to be a Millionaire.mp3

...which obviously will fail. I need to convert all the ISO 8859 entities to their 1 character representations so I get:

c:\80's tunes\ABC - How to be a Millionaire.mp3

Does AutoIt have a ISO 8859 convertor? Does it need one?
