Let’ What is this?

In Dave's JS Loops & Arrays he introduces something in HTML that I'm not familiar with: Let’ What the heck is this?

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <title>Let&rsquo;s Make Random Numbers</title>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css">
<h1>Let&rsquo;s Make Random Numbers</h1>
<script src='scripts.js'></script>

HTML uses some special character encoding - like Β© (which makes the copyright symbol). I think $rsquo; stands for "right side quote". Some symbols like greater than and less then just won't show up because the browser thinks you are trying to write HTML. For more symbols & character codes check the list at: http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_symbols.asp

Yep, that's what we call HTML entities.
