Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)
Getting email addresses from web pages, I found they were encoded using HTML entities (such as "'64';" instead than "@"). Using this function I'm now able to transform email addresses formatted like "email@example.com" to their readable form like "firstname.lastname@example.org"
