The Latin1 (ISO8859-1) Character Set

The tables below show the complete Latin1 (ISO8859-1) character set. Each entry shows If your computer supports a compose key, then you may be able to type characters such as with a three key compose sequence such as ``<Compose> L =''.

If your computer does not support a compose key, you can produce characters such as in HTML with &#163; (including the terminal semicolon) or &pound; (again including the terminal semicolon).

Characters such as in the symbol font are produced in HTML with <font face="symbol"></font>, or equivalently <font face="symbol">&#163;</font>, or <font face="symbol">&pound;</font>.

The first 32 characters, &#0; to &#31;, and also &#127; (DEL), are control characters, whose action in HTML is undefined.

Character &#32; is the space character.

Character &#160; or &nbsp; (if you have a Compose key, try ``<Compose> <space> <space>'') is the no-break-space character, which has many uses. For example, the no-break-space character is what fills the empty slots in the tables below. As another example, you can use it to produce indented paragraphs
       like this.

The HTML 4.0 specification contains a whole slew more character entities, whereby it would become possible to refer to characters like a (Greek alpha) as α or its numerical equivalent &#945;.
