Those wouldn't help you anyways; URL encoding and HTML Entity encoding are completely separate things.
There is no built-in encoder/decoder for HTML entitites. You'll either need to write your own or find a 3rd party implementation.
Depending upon how detailed you want to get (do you want to support all entitites, or just the critical ones like &, < and >) it can be as simple as a few calls to String.replaceAll(). [ May 03, 2007: Message edited by: Bear Bibeault ]

At the moment, just the critical one like those you mentioned. [ May 03, 2007: Message edited by: Kevin Weisz ]
