Reverse solidus "backslash" in Web authoring

In the HTML language itself, there is nothing special with the reverse solidus character: it is a normal data character with no markup significance. But in Web authoring, different other languages and notations (e.g. JavaScript and URLs) are used too, and they are often combined with HTML and with each other. This may cause confusion, since the languages and notations may use the reverse solidus for different purposes. This document tries to clarify concepts and to suggest practical measures to avoid confusion.
