What is HTML Transcoding?

HTML transcoding is a kind of data re-format, which converts some html tags into plain text to help users to observe the source code easily after they extract the html of a web. For example, it can transcode “&gt” into “>” or “&lt;” into a “<”.

It is easy to find it if you follow these steps:

Choose a data field ➜Click "Customize Field". ➜Click "Re-format extracted data".➜Click “Add steps”.➜ Choose “Html transcoding”.

All the conversion will be automatically done well after you click OK.

This function actually is seldom used compared to other data re-format functions such as “Replace with Regular Expression”. Click here to know more about powerful functions of data re-format, helping to make your data clearer!
