Title

Interpreting Unicode Characters

Post

I am importing information from an Oracle database, part of which is the title of a scientific program.  Lots of scientists who enter this information like to type in the unicode character for a symbol (like PI, but it can be anything) using a string such as "−"  The problem is that wihen I import the title I get the − and not the symbol.  Does anyone have an elegent method of searching a text string for unicode and replacing the &#whatever; with the symbol?
