Why are HTML Entities and HTML Symbols useful?
Sometimes, designers, developers, and editors need to use some special characters or symbols on web pages. These can be currency signs, pointers, arrows, or HTML reserved characters like the lesser-than symbol <.
Most of those symbols are rarely featured in standard keyboards, or they cannot be inserted directly into the text. The < symbol mentioned above is a good example. It is used to mark the beginning of an HTML tag, thus it cannot be used directly in your content.
What are HTML Entities and HTML Symbols?
To solve this problem, designers, developers, and editors need to use an HTML entity, a code that represents the symbol they want to insert into the page.
Each of these symbols has a unique Unicode representation, a CSS, a Hex, and a Decimal code. Several will also have an HTML entity, that is a more human-friendly and memorable version of the code.
