I already found out how to type in the © symbol into the code, I could not figure out how to do that in html or css, I just knew the keyboard strokes for it. The instructor did not show us how to do this. Oh well, that was a past exercise but I wish I knew it then.


This question has been split from another post or thread. This was done in order to address the topic more in depth, make it easier to find via forum searches, as well as prevent the other post/thread from going too far off-topic. Please continue this part of the conversation here. Thanks for understanding our tech Q&A policies.

Most non-alphanumeric characters and symbols are created by using & something ;
For example:
  • copyright = ©
  • M-dash = —
  • n-dash = –
  • bullet = •
  • right arrow = →
  • left arrow = ←
  • non-breaking space =  
You can also represent symbols with their ASCII code. & #ascii ;
For example:
  • bullet = &#8226 ; (the only one I know off-hand)

If you're wondering why the code didn't turn into HTML on this post, it's because the forum doesn't support HTML in-post.

That's not exactly correct, forums will typically convert the text so it's represented of whatever characters you have used:

Quote:
copyright = ©
After it's parsed the ampersand is converted:

Code:
<ul>
<li>copyright = &amp;copy;</li>
<li>M-dash = &amp;mdash;</li>
<li>n-dash = &amp;ndash;</li>
<li>bullet = &amp;bull;</li>
<li>right arrow = &amp;rarr;</li>
<li>left arrow = &amp;larr;</li>
<li>non-breaking space = &amp;nbsp;</li>
</ul>
If you want to post characters you have to post them as characters:
