# HTML Entities

HTMLWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

In HTML, some characters are reserved for syntax declaration. Using these characters in text might cause unwanted errors. For example, you cannot use the greater than and less than signs or angle brackets within your HTML text because the browser will treat them differently and will try to draw a meaning related to HTML tag.

NOTE  − Entity names are case sensitive so should be used as they are.
