Chapter 6. Type and Typography > Special Characters

Special Characters

If you're just using QuarkXPress to type letters to your Uncle Neil, you probably don't need this section. If you're doing just about anything else with it, stand by.

When you look at your computer keyboard, you see between 50 and 100 characters represented on the keys. What you don't see are the hundreds of special characters you can access with just a few keystrokes. In this section I'll look at some of those characters, including invisible “utility” characters, dingbats, math symbols, and special punctuation. By no means do you have to memorize most of these; instead, when you're actually working on documents, you may want to refer back to the tables I've included in this section.
