    Hello,

    the following xml text structure has encoded markup signs:

    %3C%3Fxml+version%3D%221.0%22+encoding%3D%22UTF-8%22%3F%3E%3C ...

    [How] can this xml text structure be imported or converted in UltraEdit to be displayed as decoded XML text without encoded markups?

    I'm working with version 11.10c+1.

      Your version of UE does not support scripts. With a script it would be very easy to search for %[0-9A-F][0-9A-F] and convert the hexadecimal value of the encoded characters to characters.

      So you have to use a macro for that job with the macro property Continue if a Find with Replace not found checked for this macro.

      InsertMode
      ColumnModeOff
      HexOff
      UnixReOff
      Find MatchCase "%22"
      Replace All """
      Find MatchCase "%3C"
      Replace All "<"
      Find MatchCase "%3D"
      Replace All "="
      Find MatchCase "%3E"
      Replace All ">"
      Find MatchCase "%3F"
      Replace All "?"

      Edited on 2010-11-27: More easily is to select the encoded text and use command HTML Decode from the HTML toolbar.

        Thanks for this hint. Again and again I'm surprised about the features of UltraEdit. I still added some statements.
        So for all, who'll have a similar task sometime, here's my macro script DecodeMarkups:

        InsertMode
        ColumnModeOff
        HexOff
        UnixReOff
        Find "%0A"
        Replace All "^n"
        Find "+"
        Replace All " "
        Find "%21"
        Replace All "!"
        Find "%22"
        Replace All """
        Find "%26"
        Replace All "&"
        Find "%28"
        Replace All "("
        Find "%29"
        Replace All ")"
        Find "%2C"
        Replace All ","
        Find "%2F"
        Replace All "/"
        Find "%3A"
        Replace All ":"
        Find "%3B"
        Replace All ";"
        Find "%3C"
        Replace All "<"
        Find "%3D"
        Replace All "="
        Find "%3E"
        Replace All ">"
        Find "%3F"
        Replace All "?"
        Find "%5B"
        Replace All "["
        Find "%5C"
        Replace All "\"
        Find "%5D"
        Replace All "]"
