Hi All,

I'm facing a problem that in one scenario I want all the html links should be converted in plain text. And in other scenario if there is a plain text that is originally a link or URL should be parced and converted into Link.

Best Regards

Can you explain what you mean by HTML links becoming plain text. Of course HTML is plain text by nature. Are you wanting to take

Go to <a href="">my home page</a>

and convert it to

Go to

And in the other scenario convert

Go to


Go to <a href=""></a>

Please clarify your problem.
