HTML Symbol Entities

HTML entities were described in the previous chapter.

Many mathematical, technical, and currency symbols, are not present on a normal keyboard.

To add such symbols to an HTML page, you can use an HTML entity name.

If no entity name exists, you can use an entity number, a decimal, or hexadecimal reference.

Example

<p>I will display €</p>
<p>I will display €</p>
<p>I will display €</p>

Will display as :

I will display €
I will display €
I will display €
