Blockquote When displaying HTML tag names as text, you can’t just use the < or > characters, since your browser will think you are trying to create an actual HTML tag. In order to show HTML tags as text, use < to represent < and $gt; to represent > .
I’d like to write this part in my HTML document but I am not able to write < and > in plain text. There are only < > symbols.
I have the same problem with the arrow symbol ➔. I want to match the symbol to its hex code but the latter doesn’t appear.
Do you mean you want to be able to use < and > in your text-you want to say “To display < and > in HTML, use < and >.” If so, consider using the <code> tag. See this article for more information on it. As summary, the <code> tag is used to display text in a browser that might be interpreted as code-HTML or otherwise.
If you want to use the & sign, and have something follow it, without it being interpreted as another character you can use &. This will display simply as &, then you can add anything else to it without it being displayed otherwise.
As for displaying the arrow, a number of codes for displaying symbols like such can be found here:
