Nice article. Since you also use the word "escape" in your article, you 
may want to consider the following issues too

\u escape in JavaScript
   JavaScript inside html
   String variable in JavaScript which will used to generate html
The escape in CSS
   the CSS escape inside JavaScript
Also, you may want to make a clear cut about the differences between 
HTML build-in entity set and the much smaller XML entity set.

The JavaScript escape and the CSS escape are nasty than the html one 
because there are no required 'end' delimeter.
