A lot of a teacher's keyboarding might take place within web-based tools such as Blackboard or Ektron/Web editor. Knowing how to access the HTML editor view of these applications makes writing a little easier, especially when you need some special characters like em-dashes and curly quotes. HTML Entities are codes that will produce special characters. Fortunately, the most common ones have intuitive names and are relatively easy to remember. To use these codes, you need to be in the HTML editor of the application you're using. All HTML entities start with an ampersand (&) and end with a semi-colon (;).
