Top Previous Next

To get this dialog, just click “Special Character ” from “HTML→Spacial Objects ” menu or from “HTML toolbar”.

Certain special characters are represented in HTML by a name or a number, referred to as an entity . HTML includes entity names for characters such as the copyright symbol ( © ) the ampersand ( & ), and the registered-trademark symbol ( ® ). Each entity has both a name (such as — ) and a numeric equivalent (such as — ).

Unfortunately, many browsers (especially older browsers, and browsers other than Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer) don't properly display many of the named entities.
