Using HTML Character Entities

If a special character in your Web presentation does not resolve in the browser, that character might need to be changed to a character entity in the source file or in the SAS program. A character entity is a standardized string of characters that represents a special character. The browser recognizes the string and replaces it with the special character when it is formatting the display. One common character entity is &gt; . This entity represents the greater-than symbol (<).
Lists of standard character entities are provided in HTML reference books and in HTML references on the Worldwide Web.
For presentations that run in the Constellation and Treeview applets, the macros DS2CONST and DS2TREE enable the ENCODE argument, which you can use to automatically replace or not replace angle brackets (“<” and “>”) in TITLE and FOOTNOTE statements.
