Location: Malaysia
Operating system name and version: Linux CentOS 4.8
Version of smsd: 3.1.11
Smsd installed from: sources
Name and model of a modem / phone: Wavecomm Fastrak Supreme 10
Interface: Serial

I have a web form where folks will key in their request. Upon submitting the form, the web script will invoke smsd to send the content of the web form to me.

If the web form contain special chracters like brackets, I noticed that left bracket will be converted to
& # 40 ;
and right bracket to
& # 41 ;

PLEASE NOTE that those characters have no spaces in between them. I am not able to put them exactly here as there will be converted to their 'exact' form.

What do I need to do to rectify this ? Please help. TIA.

If using PHP, run this kind of a call before writing text to the SMS file:

$message_body = html_entity_decode($message_body);

Also check this script: smstest.php. It uses post method, but does not convert characters to HTML entities.

Thanks Keke. html_entity_decode does the trick.
