XML Characters Reference

This table lists the few pre-defined entities in XML. It is a common misconception that XML has the same entities pre-defined as HTML. On the contrary, you have to explicitly include entity definitions for anything but the five entities listed below, for instance the XHTML characters.

Entity Char Description
Pre-defined XML entities
&lt < less-than sign
&gt > greater-than sign
&quot " double quotation mark
&apos ' apostrophe
&amp & ampersand
