HTML Character Entity References

Character Entities References are the way you put special letters, numbers and symbols on the web page. A character entity reference consists of an ampersand (&), followed by a pound sign (#), the number of the character entity, and finishing with a semi-colon (;). Alternately, for some characters you can put ampersand, the name of the character (but no # sign), followed by a semi-colon.

The following table shows some popular symbols :

34 quot quotation mark = APL quote
38 amp & ampersand
60 lt < less-than sign
62 gt > greater-than sign
160 nbsp no-break space = non-breaking space
169 copy © copyright sign
174 reg ® registered sign = registered trade mark sign
8226 bull bullet = black small circle
bullet is NOT the same as bullet operator
