Special Entities

The following table gives the character entity reference, decimal character reference, and hexadecimal character reference for markup-significant and internationalization characters, as well as the rendering of each in your browser. Glyphs of the characters are available at the Unicode Consortium.

With the exception of HTML 2.0's ", &, <, and >, browser support for these entities is generally quite poor, but recent browsers support some of the character entity references and decimal character references.

& - to produce the & character 
&lt; - to produce the < character
