Hi in this link a list with Popular Characters in HTML you can use it.
If you do not understand you can paste in your code.

Sorry, have no clue how to Escape that or how to use them at this stage…
Several times I clicked on GET CODE and nothing happened…been badly stuck
since yesterday…
here is the screen print and below it a screen print of the latest source
of a solution that
still does not work…unable to GET CODE I found a site claiming to
create the Escaped HTML result at the below link if you copy the code
in…so I tried it and the screen print is below…but I still cannot make
it RUN or GET CODE to show me what the answer should look like so I can see
what I am doing wrong…HELP!

Here you don’t need to do any escape. What you have to do is to remove the url that you have in your src attribute and replace it by the one in the instructions this "https://s3.amazonaws.com/codecademy-content/projects/make-a-website/lesson-1/ollie.mp4. And don’t forget to close tag for the video </video>

still not working…can you see my error?..thanks, Jim

On the learn part copy that example and paste it in your code. Then you remove “video-url.mp4” in the src attribute and replace it by “https://s3.amazonaws.com/codecademy-content/projects/make-a-website/lesson-1/ollie.mp4”.
