Symbols in Blog Posts

Following on from my last post on using 'entities' in your html to display special characters, here are a few that you may find useful - symbols that you may wish to use but are not on your keyboard:




NameSymbolEnter this into html area
Copyright symbol(©)&#169
Trademark®&#174
Half½&#189
Quarter¼&#188
Three Quarters¼&#190
Curly Quotes &#8220
Curly Quotes&#8221
Bullet&#8226
Right Arrow &#8594
Left Arrow &#8592
At@&#64
Heart&#9829

If you look at the heart above, you will see that these symbols can be formatted just like any other text.
I will create a chart containing more symbols and their entity numbers soon.
