Chapter 4. Creating and Formatting Text > Using Symbols and Special Characters

Using Symbols and Special Characters

The advantage of having FrontPage automatically handle your HTML coding becomes particularly obvious when you need to add special characters to your Web pages. Whether it’s a copyright symbol, a formula operator, a Euro sign, or a Cyrillic character, FrontPage can handle it and spare you the headache of remembering the HTML equivalent.

To add a symbol or special character

1.
Click in the page where you want the symbol or special character to appear.

2.
Choose Insert > Symbol (Figure 4.80).

Figure 4.80. To add a symbol or special character to a page, choose Insert > Symbol.


3.
When the Symbol dialog box appears, click the Subset drop-down menu and choose which symbol or language subset you want to use (Figure 4.81). Release your cursor once you have scrolled to the desired subset and its characters will appear in the dialog box’s main window.

Figure 4.81. Use the Symbol dialog box’s Subset drop-down menu to find a particular subset of characters.


4.
Find the particular symbol you need by using the main window’s scroll bar, select it, and click Insert (Figure 4.82). The character will be inserted into your Web page.

Figure 4.82. Select the desired symbol in the dialog box’s main window and click Insert.


Tip

  • The Symbol dialog box’s Recently used symbols window can save you a ton of time if you use particular characters over and over (Figure 4.81). After you have inserted a particular character into a page once, it will be added to the Recently used symbols window—where it will be immediately available the next time you need it. The window can store up to 16 recent characters.
