Thanks for the great function, there should be a FM standard URLdecode function, but until then, this is great.

Here is the full list I'm using in multiple parts since there 's a 1500 character reply limit.

["%20";" "];
["%A0";" "];

looks like you need to replace '&qu ot' with ' " '.

Don't think anyone needs these, but just incase.

Code seems to get messed up a bit, so fix where needed like ["%41";"A"];

For best results, move the [ "%25" ; "%" ] to the bottom of the list. Otherwise, if there are any embedded %'s they may be re-interpreted as an additional escape sequence.
