The HTML to Text conversion tool works by creating a temporary HTML element, setting its innerHTML to the HTML string you input, and then retrieving the textContent (for most browsers) or innerText (for Internet Explorer). What this means is that it parses the HTML string as though it were an actual part of an HTML document, and then retrieves only the text content, essentially ignoring and removing all the HTML tags.
The tool is particularly useful when you need to extract plain text from HTML code. Some possible use cases include:
Simplicity: This tool is very simple and straightforward to use. You just input an HTML string and it gives you the text content.
Efficiency: Instead of manually going through the HTML code and deleting the HTML tags, this tool can save you a significant amount of time by doing it automatically.
Versatility: The tool can handle any HTML code, as long as it’s correctly formatted. It can handle simple paragraphs, lists, links, tables, etc. (although the resulting text might not always be formatted as you’d expect).
