stands for American Standard Code for Information Interchange. In
order to display certain characters or symbols within your HTML
pages, you must use a special ASCII code. The codes below display
the character in the first colum, the HTML code to use on your web
page in the second and the Windows Alt+code option in the third.
Characters without alt+ numbers are made by using standard keyboard
To use any of
the characters displayed within the ASCII codes chart, type the
HTML code that appears to the right of the character you would like
to use, or hold the Alt key down and type the four digit alt number.
Note that the first column of HTML Codes have "names"
assigned to them. The same characters appear elsewhere on the chart
with there HTML Code number. All HTML Code characters begin with
& and end with a ;.
