ASCII Characters

In Windows programs the individual characters of the ASCII character set can be inserted using the Alt key plus a number pad combination or Alt Code.

The procedure is to hold down the Alt key, tap out the appropriate number (the number in the left column below) on the number pad, then release the Alt key.

Note that—in the second half of the table—most Alt Codes produce a different character when a leading zero is added to the number. i.e. from number 127 upwards, “Alt+0127” and “Alt+127” for example, will each produce different characters.

Alt+189 gives ¢ but Alt+0189 gives ½

So all the characters in the third column are produced by prepending a leading zero to the number.

Hex codes and HTML entities are included in the table for completeness, but a much more extensive and useful listing of the HTML entities is found on this page: HTML Character Set.

Not all of these characters are useable in all fonts. If a character shows up as a square, try changing the font to Arial or Times.
