    Here is the brief introduction about the HTML symbols.

    There are various mathematical or other symbols, which are not available on keyboard. In HTML we cannot add the angle sign with text, because it will take it as a tag. So we use HTML symbols in these cases.

    We can add those symbols in HTML by using HTML entity name or number.

     

    Below is the example of HTML symbols:-

    <body>
    <p>This is the entity name for COPYRIGHT  &copy;</p>
    <p>This is the entity number for COPYRIGHT  &#169</p>
    <p>This is the entity name for BLACK SPADE SUIT  &spades;</p>
    <p>This is the entity number for BLACK SPADE SUIT  &#9824;</p>
    </body>

     

    Here is the output of above code:-
