What are HTML Entities?

Reserved characters in HTML must be replaced with character entities.Characters that are not present on your keyboard can be replaced by entities.

HTML Entities
In HTML some characters are reserved.Using the less than (<) or greater than (>) signs in  text then  the browser might mix them with tags.
A character entity:
&entity_name;
 OR
 &#entity_number;
To display a  sign (<) we must write: &It or &#60;
Non-breaking Space
 Common character entity used in HTML is the non-breaking space and it  will not break into a new line.
Two words separated by a non-breaking space will stick together. This is handy when breaking the words might be disruptive.
