html.entities — Definitions of HTML general entities
Source code: Lib/html/entities.py
This module defines four dictionaries, html5, name2codepoint, codepoint2name, and entitydefs.
A dictionary that maps HTML5 named character references 1 to the equivalent Unicode character(s), e.g.
html5['gt;'] == '>'. Note that the trailing semicolon is included in the name (e.g.
'gt;'), however some of the names are accepted by the standard even without the semicolon: in this case the name is present with and without the
';'. See also html.unescape().
- A dictionary mapping XHTML 1.0 entity definitions to their replacement text in ISO Latin-1.
- A dictionary that maps HTML entity names to the Unicode code points.
- A dictionary that maps Unicode code points to HTML entity names.
