Html character entities

An “entity” is a decorative expression to refer to an icon. There are several icons, including copyright, trademark, or foreign cash icons, on your standard keyboard, so you have to show these characters utilizing a various method.

There are three segments to every entity.

  • Each starts with a ampersand – &
  • The entities’ name comes next – copy
  • And at the end a semicolon – ;


Combine © to make – © – Copyright symbol.

Be waiting for difficulties if you forget to consider all three segments of an entity.
