Part IV: Appendixes > HTML Character Entities

Appendix B. HTML Character Entities

To display symbols and characters beyond the collection of common ASCII alphanumeric values (0-127), browsers recognize a special coding that lets you insert such characters into HTML document content. These entity characters start with an ampersand symbol (&) and end with a semicolon (;). Between those symbols goes a representation for the desired character. Each of these characters has a numeric value associated with it. You can insert the number of that value in the entity. For example, the numeric entity value for a copyright symbol is 169. An HTML statement using that symbol looks as follows:

<P STYLE="align: center">&#169;1998 MegaCorp, Inc. All Rights Reserved.</P>
