How to decode HTML entities using jQuery?

I want to convert this text:

"<p>name</p><p><span style="font-size:xx-small;">ajde</span></p><p><em>da</em></p>"

to html, with tags and everything in Javascript or Jquery. How to do this?

Answer

Using jQuery the easiest will be:

var text = '<p>name</p><p><span style="font-size:xx-small;">ajde</span></p><p><em>da</em></p>';

var output = $("<div />").html(text).text();
console.log(output);

Answer
var text = '&lt;p&gt;name&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;span style="font-size:xx-small;"&gt;ajde&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;da&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt;';
var decoded = $('<textarea/>').html(text).text();
alert(decoded);

This sets the innerHTML of a new element (not appended to the page), causing jQuery to decode it into HTML, which is then pulled back out with .text().

There is a jQuery solution in this thread. Try something like this:

var decoded = $("<div/>").html('your string').text();

This sets the innerHTML of a new <div> element (not appended to the page), causing jQuery to decode it into HTML, which is then pulled back out with .text().

I think you are looking for this ?

$('#your_id').html('&lt;p&gt;name&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;span style="font-size:xx-small;"&gt;ajde&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;da&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt;').text();
