Character Entities for Web Documents

To type these characters in Linux or Windows, hold down the ALT key and enter the decimal code using exactly four digits. Use leading zeros as needed. (For programs that are not unicode-aware, you can only use this typing convention for values up to 255.)

Many character entity names are pre-defined in HTML 4 and/or XML. You can define them explicitly using the DOCTYPE construct and the numerical entity references shown in the table. Example:

		<!DOCTYPE doc [
			<!ENTITY num  "&#35;">
			<!ENTITY copy "&#169;">
		]>
