What is HTML Entity Encoding?

To ensure that non-standard characters are shown appropriately in a web browser, HTML entity encoding is used. Special letters like the less than sign (), larger than sign (>), and an ampersand (&), among others, are represented in HTML through the use of entities, a set of predefined characters and symbols (&).

For instance, using the HTML entity code will cause a web browser to render the less-than sign. The ampersand (&) and greater than (>) signs can be represented in code in the same way.

Entity encoding in HTML ensures that non-standard characters can be used in HTML code without creating errors or unexpected results. For security reasons, it's crucial since encrypting harmful input helps prevent cross-site scripting (XSS) assaults.

As a whole, HTML entity encoding is an important part of web development and security since it allows for the proper representation of special characters in HTML.
