Hi All,
Can anyone tell me how can i convert © tag for copyright in HTMl to copyright symbol in text format.
I have tried using
result = htmltotextConv.replaceRegEx(result, "©","�", false);
but its not printing the symbol,even when i tried using the string instead of symbol its not working.
Please help me...

I assume you're using some Open Source library for this? Or std Java?
