For example, to format a word in italic, you include it in two pairs of single quotes like ''this''.

Adding HTML symbols

An HTML symbol entity is a sequence of characters that produces one particular character. For example, → produces a right arrow "" and — produces an em dash "". HTML symbol entities are used to insert characters not normally available on keyboards:

© → ©
δ → δ

and to prevent the parser from interpreting and displaying HTML tags and symbols:

€ → €
€ →
&lt;span style="color:green;">Green&lt;/span> → <span style="color:green;">Green</span>
<span style="color:green;">Green</span> → Green

The following is a list of characters that can be produced using HTML symbols. Hover any character to find out the symbol that produces it. Some symbols not available in the current font will appear as empty squares.
