  • At first you will need to sign in to your Blogger Account if you haven't signed in to your Blogger Account yet.
  • Now click on the Blog Title in which you want to add HTML Encoder.
  • Go to Dashboard and click on Pages. Now create a new and fresh Blank Page so that you can add HTML Encoder on that page. You can also add HTML Encoder in the Posts Page if you wish to add the HTML Encoder in your Post Page.
  • Now Switch to HTML Mode of your new Blogger blog Page. If you are adding this Encoder in the post page than switch to HTML Mode in that case too.
  • It's time for codes. At first make sure that there aren't any codes in the HTML Editor. If their are some codes than at first delete that codes. Now add the code given below in the HTML Mode of Blogger Post Editor.
<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on">
<script type="text/javascript">
//<![CDATA[
function html2entities(){
var re=/[(<>"'&]/g
for (i=0; i<arguments.length; i++)
arguments[i].value=arguments[i].value.replace(re, function(m){return replacechar(m)})
}
function replacechar(match){
if (match=="<")
return "&lt;"
else if (match==">")
return "&gt;"
else if (match=="\"")
return "&quot;"
else if (match=="'")
return "&#039;"
else if (match=="&")
return "&amp;"
}
//]]>
</script>
<br />
<div id="wrap">
<div id="wrap2">
<div class="widget Blog" id="Blog1">
<div class="blog-posts hfeed">
<form class="ht-newform">
<textarea class="ht-encoder" name="data1" placeholder="Add Codes Here and Click Encode to Parse it"></textarea>&nbsp;
<br />
<div style="text-align: left;">
</div>
<div style="text-align: left;">
&nbsp;<input class="ht2" onclick="html2entities(this.form.data1)" onmouseout="this.className='ht2'" onmouseover="this.className='ht2 ht2hov'" type="button" value="Encode" /> <input class="ht2" onmouseout="this.className='ht2'" onmouseover="this.className='ht2 ht2hov'" type="reset" value="Clear All" /> </div>
</form>
</div>
</div>
</div>
</div>
</div>
After adding the code given above in the specified place you can save your newly created page. If you would like to turn off comments on the HTML Encoder page than switch to Compose Mode and  than click on Options. Now choose your desired option for comments.
