Ascii Code Table and Unicode Reference for HTML

14 Aug. 2012 - - Total Reads 19,669

Ever wondered how some people add those special characters, or language characters that are added to posts or webpages? Well they are called Unicode / ASCII codes and there are thousands of them.  Here are some examples; ☼ ♺ ◴ ✆ ⚽  ⓼ ⏏ (Not seeing a sun, recycle, clock, telephone, football, number 8 in a circle and eject character? Not to worry, not all systems are setup to display all ASCII Codes).

Interestingly these are all text characters and can be easily added to a webpage by typing &# followed immediately by the Unicode / ASCII code and then a semicolon “;” character. You can use these codes anywhere you can insert HTML.  For example, below are the characters for ⌨ through to &#9100, you can click this table below to open up the full list of extended codes. Depending on your system and browser, some of the Unicode / ASCII characters may not be visible, however if you are running a recent browser, all 54,999 should be. You can also copy and paste the characters from the tables. For more, open AndMine’s Code Reference Tables.

Oscar Sessions Said :
"This isn't actually the ascii chart. It is the Unicode chart. vs sorry. nice chart though. You should really hyperlink the whole td element instead of just the character. I couldn't figure out how to open the section. So your code would look like this <a href="..." other code if you do it this way the whole block is the link! Cool no?"
Michael Simonetti Said :
"Hi Oscar - thanks well pointed out ASCII being the subset of Unicode - i'll update the title accordingly and agree the entire TD should be linked not just the character - ill have the Devs sort this out. It was actually a table I wrote many years ago before UX was a buzzword."
