Replacing more encoded character entities (e.g. – ) (1 post)

    (I put an & # 8 2 1 1 ; in the subject and it turned into the hyphen :)

    Could there be a more general "down-convert character entities to simple character substitutes" for the entire string?

    I had an excerpt:
    First trailer for Ender's Game due out May 7th - shut up and take my money!

    and the tweet appeared as:
    First trailer for Ender's Game due out May 7th & # 8211 ; shut up and take my money!
    (spaces added by me to keep this forum from displaying as a hyphen :)

    I understand that's not easy. I'm not sure what Twitter wants; UTF-8 character encoding maybe? Perhaps there's a [relatively] easy way to convert encoded chars into their UTF-8 character?
