So, You Want An ASCII Code, Huh?

By Joe Burns

     When writing a WWW page you want to have as much flexibility as possible in placing characters. If you have read my tutorial on & Commands, then you know you can create characters not found on the normal keyboard using an & and a ; with a small command between them. Well, you can also do the same using &# and a ; with a command in between them. These are called ASCII commands and are very similar to what your computer uses to display the text you type.

     Listed below are the ASCII commands that produce certain characters not readily found on the keyboard. (Some are, though, just to keep the flow of the numbers.)

     You'll notice that some are doubles from the & Commands tutorial. Just follow the format below to place any of these on your page. Do not enclose these in the < and > commands. They sit just as they look in the boxes below.

In Case You're Wondering

     Since these are ASCII commands, there must be an equal for all the characters already found on the keyboard. There are.
  • Numbers 33 through 47, 58 through 64, 91 through 96, and 123 through 126 are the non-letter and non-numerical characters on the keyboard, things like a $ and a *.
  • Numbers 48 through 57 are the numerals zero through nine.
  • Numbers 65 through 90 are the capital letters A through Z.
  • Numbers 97 through 122 are the lowercase letters a through z.
  • Number 127 is the delete key entry.
  • Numbers 128 through 159 are not in use.
  • Number 160 is the space bar.
  • The other numbers are covered below.

     In each cell, you'll see what the command creates, then below it is the command you use to create the symbol.
