HTML Characters

Greater-than and less-than signs have special meaning within HTML documents and, because of this, can’t be used on a web page unless they are specified in a particular way. These special characters are specified in HTML by “surrounding” a simple description of them with an ampersand (&) and a semi-colon (;).Please find below a list of common characters:
