You can fix this bug with this code example

$str='dwadwadawd&amp;#180;dwadawd';
print(preg_replace("/&amp;#(.*?);/","&#$1;",$str));

it is not so good but it's work...

The ? character is not part of iso-8859-15, but for instance iso-8859-1 please check your encoding. 

See http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/00b4/index.htm and http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/00b4/charset_support.htm

If it still goes wrong please give the exact byte values used by your encoding.
