HTML Entities - Free WebmasterTools
Sometimes you want to encode your text so that certain specials characters are preserved regardless of your user’s character set. This is done by replacing special characters with their HTML Entities. Unlike our HTML Encoder tool, this tool will change all special characters while preserving any HTML tags.
HTML code before encoding: <p>& é $ à ç </p>
HTML code after encoding: <p>& é $ à ç </p>
(make sure the above example is encoded to display properly, otherwise it’s going to be reversed, lol)
