how & why

Answer Source

That would be unescape().

2017 Edit: I should note that unescape() has now been deprecated in favour of decodeURI() and decodeURIComponent(). Also, escape() has been deprecated in favour of encodeURI and encodeURIComponent() respectively.

At least they are fairly obvious opposites.
