HTML Symbols Tutorials

1. HTML Symbols

There are many mathematical, technical and currency symbols which are not present on a normal keyboard. We have to use HTML entity names to add such symbols to an HTML page.

If there no entity name exists, you can use an entity number, a decimal, or hexadecimal reference.

2. Example:

  1. <!DOCTYPE html>     
  2.       <html>        
  3.        <body>    
  4.           <h3>The Currency Symbols</h3>  
  5.                    <p>This is Indian Rupee symbol <b><b></p>   
  6.          <p>This is Euro symbol <b></b></p>      
  7.          <p> This is Dollar symbol <b>#36;</b></p>
