About HTML Entity

HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is the standard markup language for creating web pages.

When should you use HTML entities?
Some characters are reserved in HTML, and must be replaced with character entities. Special characters can also be replaced by entities.
For example, character "<" is reserved in HTML, and must be encode.

There are two formats for HTML Entities: &name; and &#number;
For example for & character : &amp; &#38;

We use the javascript API to encode and decode html entities.
