I am having a database which has content like footer, footnotes and disclaimer. content can have HTML entities such as † and ANSI code so that browser is able to interpert and format accordingly. We are pulling the same content for display in web page as well as in PDF. But our PDF render process fails to display since HTML entities and ANSI code are browser-specific and not PDF-specific. How to convert these HTML entities and ANSI code so that to display the same symbol in PDF?
