HTML Tag Reference

Special Symbols and Entities

To use the upper ASCII characters in HTML documents, you need to type decimal references or entity references.

Decimal references have the format &#nnn; where nnn is a number that references the character. Entity references have the format &nnn; where nnn is a text string that references the character.

In addition to entity and decimal references, HTML has reserved characters that have special meanings in HTML files. For example, HTML uses angle brackets to enclose HTML tags. If you want to use an angle bracket in your text, you have to use a special character or entity reference; otherwise, Netscape Navigator (or other web browser) might misinterpret the character and display incorrect text or even an error message.
