Representing special characters in HTML

Tech Computer Center logo

If you want to display certain characters in an HTML document, it is necessary to use escape sequences. For each of the characters in the left-hand column below, substitute the group of characters in the right-hand column.

    <   &lt;
    >   &gt;
    &   &amp;

For example, to display the text ``<code>'' use ``&lt;code&gt;''.

See the next topic for international characters such as ``Ô'' and ``ñ.''
