In my recent article titled
Writing Article with HTML entities "Subscript" and "Superscript"
I already showed you how to create HTML entities "subscript" and "superscript" text formatting in posted article in order to create a distinct appearance of special text/formulas/codes from other normal text besides the use of Courier font type.
Anyway, as i searched little bit further about the adding of HTML entities into article, i just found out that there are bunch of useful HTML entities that are formally used by common bloggers in their blogs. For example, in some other blogs, you can see the copyright code "©" stacked on their blogs to prevent their contents from being stolen by irresponsible individuals around the internet.
Other useful characters in HTML entities such as ®, ™, or € can help you a lot when writing article contains those unique characters by using HTML entities via Edit HTML in post editor. Okay, in this article, i am gonna show you how to insert those special characters or HTML entities in our posted article.
1. Log in to Blogger account
Now go to Blogger.com and log in to your Blogger account.
2. Create a New Post
In this article, i am just gonna show you how to create the special characters by using some HTML entities via Edit HTML in the post editor, so i suggest you to do these steps in the post editor. Now in the Dashboard, press the New Post button in your chosen blog.
3. Switch the tab of post editor to Edit HTML
After landing to the New Post editor, now switch the tab from Compose to Edit HTML mode. In this mode, we will be able to insert the HTML codes in our article, and as a result, can be seen directly from Compose mode. So, it's all about switching the tabs, Compose to Edit HTML, back and forth. But now, we are gonna use the Edit HTML feature.
4. Pick any special symbol and put the HTML entities
As you can see below, all the Name and Number of HTML entities can be easily used and will be resulting in the specific symbol you are referring to. For example, now pick any of these symbol of HTML entities you want to use, i assume that you want to use a registered trademark symbol "®" in your article, now copy either the entity name ® or the entity number ™ in the Edit HTML Blogger post editor.
|Result||Description||Entity Name||Entity Number|
|non-breaking space|| || |
5. See the result
To see the result of that special character of HTML entities, now switch the tab back to Compose mode. As you can see, in the Compose, the character "®" will be displayed in the post editor.
Okay, that's it for now. See you at my next article.
