As a newbie in coding in encoding I need some help from the guru here.
When I get information from a user database (mySQL) I get text that looks like:

(('&#8830Hello World&#8830'),(''))

How can I create this info into a string that looks like:
"Hello World"

Because what I know is that &#8830 stands for the character "

Must be veeeeerrrrryyyy simple, but how?
