Special characters may be inserted into text using HTML syntax. Such characters are known as entities. They start with an ampersand and end with a semicolon. The main reason for doing this is to insert characters that otherwise have a special meaning. The most common entities have names. The rest must be referred to by their ASCII number (e.g. &#38; is the same as &amp;). The common ones are listed in the following table. Note that the same effect may be achieved by simply escaping the special character (like \<). The full entity syntax is included for generality.
