HTML Escape Characters

Whenever I’m creating an HTML page and have a need to use a character that needs escaping (which is less common than the & or ©) I have to go hunting for a list of HTML escape characters so I’ve put together this article as a quick reference of all the character codes and entity names that you can use within HTML.

Please feel free to bookmark this page and use it whenever you need a quick reference for any HTML escape characters.

6 comments on “HTML Escape Characters

    I had a problem yesterday with my blog post as WordPress was converting the colon followed by the letter “o” into a smiley and therefore the quickest solution for me (rather than rewriting part of wordpress) was to go and find the HTML escaped character for the colon and drop that in there 🙂

    That’s pretty much what triggered this blog post so now I’ll know where to go when I need a list of escaped characters 🙂

    Hi Dmitry, think you must have missed it. The EURO is the second one in the table above 😉
