HTML Entities


HTML 4.01 supports the ISO 8859-1 (Latin-1) character set.

The lower part of ISO-8859-1 (codes from 0-127) is the original 7-BIT ASCII standard. Most of these characters can be used without a character reference.

The higher part of ISO-8859-1 (codes from 160-255) can all be used using character entity names. Note that the entity names are case sensitive.
