What Is HTML Entity Converter

An HTML entities converter is a tool or a script that can convert special characters and symbols in HTML code into their corresponding HTML entities.

HTML entities are a way to represent characters that have special meaning in HTML, such as the < and > characters, which are used to create elements and tags.

By converting these characters into their corresponding HTML entities, the code will be interpreted correctly by the browser, and the special characters will be displayed correctly in the rendered HTML document.

For example, the less-than sign (<) can be represented as the HTML entity < which will be interpreted as "<" by the browser, instead of being treated as an HTML tag.

Similarly, an ampersand (&) can be represented as & which will be interpreted as "&" by the browser, instead of being treated as the start of an HTML entity.

HTML entity converters can be found as online tools or as libraries in programming languages such as PHP, JavaScript, and Python. Some text editors also have built-in options to encode and decode HTML entities.
