HTML Escape is an easy to use tool to escape plain HTML to escape html. However, there are some ampersand symbols (&) and the semicolon symbol are required for all escape letters (;). The exact code name or number for a certain character is made up of the characters that appear between the ampersand and semicolon.
The entity name is the specific code name, and the entity number is the specific code number. Most of the time, entity name and entity number are interchangeable, although not all entity names may be supported by all browsers. Some characters in HTML (including the less than (<) and larger than (>) signs, which also denote tags, are regarded as reserved and must be substituted by the character’s HTML code name or number, so that the character will be read as a regular character and not a reserved HTML character.
Here are some examples of common characters.
