HTML Character Encoder

Encode text with accents and special characters into HTML character entities for use in a web page. This free online tool can also decode some text if you want to do that also.

If you create multilingual websites then this can be a super helpful tool for encoding the languages in HTML

Take any block of text contain special characters like € as well as accented letters like È and encode them into their html codes.

You can also format the text into HTML paragraphs so that you have a ready use chunk of encoded content to put online.

This conversion tool can be especially handy when publishing non-English languages like French, German, Dutch that sometimes need encoded accents to display properly on a web page.
