HTML table (HTML entities)

Special Entities


HTML 2.0 introduced character sequences called HTML entities that lets you send special characters to the client.
HTML entities begin with an ampersand (&) and end with a semicolon (;).

The following table displays the characters included in the "Special Entities" set with their Unicode value.

Any of these characters can also be addressed by using the HTML entities hexadecimal notation &#x...; along with the Unicode hexadecimal value:
for example, the copyright sign © whose Unicode code is U+00A9 can be written © (©) or © (©).
