§To obtain an HTML Character, simply type either the HTML code or the character code from the table above (into the source code document of a web page), and a browser will mark it up as a character.

*There are some gaps in the numerical sequence of HTML Character codes because those items do not exist.  Either a character’s HTML code or its character code (if there is one) may be used in an HTML source code document.  Many Special HTML Characters, Special ALT Characters, and Special <Font Face="Symbol"> Characters are the same.
