Encoding HTML

When composing a HTML page, I realize that a double quote character can be entered using: "

But can the regular letters of the alphabet likewise be entered in similar token fashion?  In other words, if I wanted to obfuscate the phrase: Hello world

I do not want to use any scripting languages for the obfuscation.
