HTML Entities

This page is made to keep a list of my favourite HTML entities which I tend to forget.

An HTML entity is a piece of text (“string”) that begins with an ampersand (\&) and ends with a semicolon (;). Entities are frequently used to display reserved characters (which would otherwise be interpreted as HTML code), and invisible characters (like non-breaking spaces). You can also use them in place of other characters that are difficult to type with a standard keyboard.

The Unicode Character Table has HTML codes for more code points that I’d ever care for))
