What's the HTML entity code for the character that looks like "«" (but it's not the less-than sign)

    That character isn't in ASCII. – Paul Tomblin Nov 1 '10 at 18:50

    You're being voted down because this isn't a programming question, and the answer is easily found by googling. – Paul Tomblin Nov 1 '10 at 18:51
  • Wouldn't this belong in doctype or webmasters? – ricbax Nov 1 '10 at 19:09

This is know as left double angle quotes. You can implement them as &#171 or «. I use this site for all my ASCIIHTML code needs.

≪ gives you "≪" (MUCH LESS-THAN)

The character you want is called "LEFT-POINTING DOUBLE ANGLE QUOTATION MARK" in Unicode. It is at code point U+00AB. It can be found in the C1 Controls and Latin-1 Supplement code chart.
