Html – Adding HTML entities using CSS content

csscss-contenthtmlhtml-entities

How do you use the CSS content property to add HTML entities?

Using something like this just prints   to the screen instead of the non-breaking space:

.breadcrumbs a:before {
  content: ' ';
}

Best Solution

You have to use the escaped unicode :

Like

.breadcrumbs a:before {
  content: '\0000a0';
}
