I found a website (tivoli.com) that likes to obfuscate some help file web pages using &#nnn; instead of normal ascii. If you load the source with Vim (in Opera you can just designate Vim as your source viewing program), you can
:source the following code to make it readable.
let n = 32 while n < 127 if n == 38 silent! exec '%s/&/\&/g' elseif n == 47 silent! exec '%s///\//g' else silent! exec '%s/&#' . n . ';/' . nr2char(n) . '/g' endif let n = n + 1 endwhile
Disclaimer: I hacked this together in about 10 minutes. It worked suitably for one web site. Your mileage may vary.
[Author implies there are some bugs in above.]
I'll upload the code as a script instead. See script#223.
