What is HTML encoding and decoding?

The conversion of special characters outside the range of normal seven-bit ASCII characters to a standard form. Encoding is used to preserve the meaning of the special characters, the information integrity and universal browser display.

For example, the character "<" cannot be used as it is, as it is also used in HTML syntax to create and close tags. So the character "<"is converted to the corresponding HTML entity “<”.HTML entity names are case sensitive.

There are so many character-encoding formats available, UTF-8 is most commonly used to encode. The type of encoding used is passed in the HTTP header so that it can be parsed. Other character encoding types are ISO-8859-4, ISO-8859-1

Manually the HTML encoding or decoding is a difficult process and can take so much time. TO save the time and to get the 100% accuracy in encoding we can use online HTML Encoders to Encode the data. The online HTML encoder and decoders are free to use. All you need to do is to type or paste the data and click on encode and theonline HTML encoder will convert the data.

The decoding process is also the same, type or paste the HTML encoded data and then click on decode.
