The htmlspecialchars_decode() function convert special HTML entities back to characters

string htmlspecialchars_decode ( string $string <, int $quote_style = ENT_COMPAT > )

This function is the opposite of htmlspecialchars(). It converts special HTML entities back to characters.

The converted entities are: &amp;, &quot; (when ENT_NOQUOTES is not set), &#039; (when ENT_QUOTES is set), &lt; and &gt;.

Example of htmlspecialchars_decode() function:

$str = "Jane &amp; &#039;Tarzan&#039;";
echo htmlspecialchars_decode($str);
echo "<br />";
echo htmlspecialchars_decode($str, ENT_QUOTES);
echo "<br />";
echo htmlspecialchars_decode($str, ENT_NOQUOTES);

The browser output of the code above will be:
Jane & "Tarzan"
Jane & "Tarzan"
Jane & "Tarzan"

If you select "View source" in the browser window, you will see the following HTML:
Jane & &#039;Tarzan&#039;<br />
Jane & "Tarzan"<br />
Jane & &#039;Tarzan&#039;
