HTML Codes for Special Characters
 

Below is a list of special characters that you might find useful. I derived these entities from the W3C HTML 3.2 Reference Specification of 14-Jan-1997.

The columns are as follows:
  1. Actual (ISO 8879 Latin-1 Character Set) Character
  2. Description of the Character
  3. Symbolic HTML Entity (to specify this character by an abbreviation)
  4. Character as Displayed by using the Symbolic HTML Entity
  5. Numeric HTML Entity (to specify this character by it's ASCII value)
  6. Character as Displayed by using the Numeric HTML Entity
