Display Special Characters ...

Have you ever wanted to include a special character in your HTML code, or needed an HTML tag to be displayed instead of being processed by the browser?  This table lists all the 8-bit ISO-8859-1 (Latin-1) characters, that can be displayed as both HTML numeric entities and as HTML named entities. You can also see how a browser renders the glyph produced by both types of entity and this enables you to check which entity names are correctly supported by different browsers.

You may previously have seen special characters embedded into an HTML page and wondered what they were. Examples of special characters include a Copyright character '©', a foreign currency character such as Yen currency '¥', a non-breaking space ' ' or the less than '<' and greater than '>' characters that surround HTML Tags. Both numeric and named entities should be preceded by an ampersand character '&' and be terminated by a semi-colon. The numeric entities displayed below are in decimal format but they can also be used in hexadecimal format as well.
