HTML Entities

A good sign that you’ve taken the time to look over your content and consider the typography is the use of HTML entities. You use them for specific punctuation marks that are either ambiguous or hard to render otherwise. One of the most common examples are the entities for opening and closing quotes. HTML entities all start with the amersand (&) and end with the semicolon (;) and have either numbers or letters inside.
