What is ‘…’ in HTML?

This post is also available in: Deutsch (German)

… is the HTML entity code for the ellipsis dots:

If you see it on a webpage outside the HTML source code, it usually means that the author or content management system has encoded the HTML entity incorrectly. You should only ever see on the page except in literal HTML sourcecode.

I recommend using the unicode character HORIZONTAL ELLIPSIS (see the code block above) instead of the HTML entity …. Ensure that you have

<meta charset="utf-8" />

in your HTML <head> for compatibility.
