HTML Escape

Escapes an HTML file, removing certain characters that could be wrongly interpreted as markup.



HTML Escape is a simple tool that turns normal HTML into escaped HTML, making it easier to display HTML text in the pre> tag. The fundamental idea is to encrypt the characters < and > and apostrophe ' to make them less identifiable as tags. Escaping HTML has a variety of uses, the most obvious of which is that it can be inserted into an HTML document without rendering to show code.

Key Attributes of HTML Escape

  • This tool saves you time by helping you escape data written in Hyper Text Markup language.
  • With the help of HTML Escape, you can load a URL that loads data to escape.

What is HTML Escape?

HTML escaping is used to represent special characters in HTML code. For example, < less than symbol > has a special meaning in HTML markup language. This tool will convert a string to HTML entities or convert HTML entities to plain text.

How does HTML Escape work?

When storing raw HTML in databases or variables, we must escape special characters so that they are not confused for markup. If your browser encounters one of these characters, it may display a page incorrectly. HTML provides special escape sequences called entities, which replace characters and symbols that have special meaning in HTML—like & < >.

When can HTML Escape be useful?

Escapes are ideal for portraying characters that are ambiguous or difficult to identify. Characters can be represented in HTML style attributes using named or numeric character references, CSS escapes, or both. HTML's style element cannot reference any named or numeric characters.
