They are codes to display some characters.

  is a non-breaking space. each " " = " "-->space, but you can put as many &nbsp as you need 'em and the line will be considered as a single line (non-breaking!)
&lt; = "<"
&gt; = ">" these two are used to agroup content as text and not as code tags, see http://www.scriptingok.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=808.
