HTML Entities

HTML Entities

//a character entity looks like this:

&entity_name;

//or

&#entity_number;

Are used to display reserved characters in HTML.

Entity names are case sensitive.

To display a less than sign (<) we must write: &lt; or &#60;.

Combining Diacritical Marks

A diacritical mark is a "glyph" added to a letter.

Diacritical marks can be used in combination with alphanumeric characters to produce a character that is not present in the character set (encoding) used in the page.
