Special HTML Characters

Special Characters for XHTML

See also the list of ASCII character codes for Windows programs right here on mistywindow.com.
All of these characters should display in Internet Explorer 7 and later, Firefox and Opera if you use the correct HTML Character Codes and font families. Many of them should display in older versions of Internet Explorer if these fonts are used:

Arial unicode MS, Arial, Geneva, sans-serif.

Notification of any errors or problems found or any further information would be appreciated. Leave a comment below.

Many symbols won’t display in HTML WYSIWYG editors: Dreamweaver, Expression Web and FrontPage for instance,  but if used, they will display in browsers.

//
//

Internet Explorer 6 and older versions are patchy in their support for these characters. Until recently, Microsoft have not been very diligent in keeping up with the progress of web standards. The fifths and sixths fractions and many of the Miscellaneous symbols might only display as a default black square.

Some of the fractions and Miscellaneous symbols may be hard to read in smaller sizes.

These Symbols should all display if you use charsets ISO 8859-1 or UTF-8.

  1. Thanks for that Anon.
    Ditto for &frac13;, &frac23;, &frac13; and &frac23; and for the fifths, sixths and eighths.
    I’ve updated the page.
    🙂

  2. Thanks for the resource, but the formatting is poor. I count at least three numbers missing the semicolon. As well, the grey highlighting is a bit haphazard…sometimes highlighting the square bracket and other times missing the semicolon.

  3. Thanks for the proof reading.
    The code tag formatting doesn’t show up as shading in my editor. Makes it difficult to find errors. Fixed now, I hope.
    🙂

    1. No Energia said she liked the star symbol, and she has been looking for it without success, and thanks for sharing it.

      🙂

  4. I’m sure I’ve seen the ALT Code for “in care of” but can’t find it now. Do you know what it is? Thanks.

  5. HTML special characters I was suggested this website by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my problem. You’re incredible! Thanks! your article about HTML special characters Best Regards Lawrence Yoder

  6. Hallo to the mistywindow team

    Thank you for this very useful list of special HTML characters! I’m just letting you know that I’ve referred to this page in my upcoming book, Confluence, Tech Comm, Chocolate: A wiki as platform extraordinaire for technical communication.

    The book will be published in February 2012. There’s news about it on my blog, and also at the publisher’s site: http://xmlpress.net/publications/chocolate/

  7. For the love of all of the things that are awesome, don’t move the page again! I had a mild heart attack when I got your 404 😛 Thanks for the list

    1. Sorry Breon. I’ll get around to updating the 404 message. Can’t have my loyal followers—either of you—dropping dead on me.
      I’m simplifying my life and combining my blog and static website into one. It’s a bit of a mission.
      🙁
