Description:

I am parsing email+subject links from a webpage. I wanted to know if there is a function which removes the special characters from the subject.As in this example:
jack@abc.com?subject=3%2B%20Year%20CNN%20BBBC%20AAA%20for%20Huge%20Tampa%20SHOE%20Table.%20Co.!!
I want to convert the special characters "%20" etc.. in this string into regular text. Please help. Thanks in advance..
