What is HTML Encoding?

HTML contains tags (for example <title> and <p> enclosed in <> brackets) which are to be understood by the web browser to decide how to render the web content. HTML tags are not meant not to be displayed to the user.

HTML encoding replaces these <> angle brackets and certain other characters with some combination of characters so that these characters can be displayed to the end user.

This is highly useful in case you want to show HTML code on a web page, say HTML Tutorial.

Following are some examples of HTML encoding

What is HTML Decoding?

Encoded HTML contains charaters which are replaced by the HTML encoding for example < converted to &lt; character combinations so that replaced characters can be displayed by the web browser.

HTML character decoding reverses this encoding process and converts back encoded HTML characters to their original form.

Example: &lt; to <

Following are some examples of HTML Decoding
