About HTML Entity Converter

HTML Entities are character mappings that have specific meaning in HTML texts. You can enter ordinary text in the text area and press the Encode button to convert it to HTML Entities. Or, youcan also enter HTML Entities and press the Decode button to convert them to plain text.

All eligible characters are converted to their respective HTML entities via the HTML character encoder. Certain characters in HTML have specific meanings and should be transformed to their proper HTML entities to maintain their meanings.

It is not feasible, for example, to utilize the & character as it is used in HTML syntax to construct and close tags. To be shown in the content of an HTML page, it must be translated to the matching HTML entity & so it can be rendered properly. The case of HTML entity names is important.
