HTML Entities

On this page you can view many of the HTML entities that can be displayed on a web page. Try your own entity code here.

If you see an empty rectangle in the second column (“Character”), that means your browser does not support the named entity. Try the numbered entity for the same character; you may see better results.

Better yet: Get Mozilla. It will display all these characters and is a much better browser!

HTML entity names ARE case-sensitive, so use them as shown here.

Here you can see all the Unicode characters that your browser is capable of displaying.
