# Unescape HTML entities in JavaScript?

To unescape HTML entities in JavaScript, use the unescaped() function. Let’s say you want to encode special character with the unescape() function −

document.write(unescape("Demo%20Text%20"));


In this article, we will see two examples −

• Unescape Entities
• Decode the Encoded String

## Unescape Entities

### Example

Lo unescape, we will use the unescaped() method in JavaScript. Let us see an example −

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
<script>
document.write(unescape("Demo%20Text%20"));
</script>
</body>
</html>


## Decode the Encoded String

Use escape() for encoding and unescape() for decoding. Here, we will set a sample string under the escape() method to encode −

var myStr = escape("Demo Text!!!");
document.write("Encoded String = " + myStr);


After that, we will use the unescape() to decode the encoded string −

document.write("Decoded = " + unescape(myStr))


### Example

Let us now see the example −

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
<script>
var myStr = escape("Demo Text!!!");
document.write("Encoded String = " + myStr);
document.write("<br>");
document.write("<hr>");
document.write("Decoded = " + unescape(myStr))
</script>
</body>
</html>
