HTML and CSS Reference
On Dave's Web page, you decide to use the bullet symbol ( • ) to break up the
address text into sections. The symbol has a character encoding number of 8226 and the
character entity reference name bull . Dave suggests that you also add a long horizontal
line known as an em-dash ( — ) to mark the customer names in the customer comments
section. The character encoding number for an em-dash is 8212 and the entity reference
is mdash .

1. Return to the jprop.htm file in your text editor.
2. Locate the customer comment from Thomas Gage, and then directly before the
opening <cite> tag insert the character code — ; followed by a space.

4. Scroll down to the address element within the page footer. At the end of each
