HTML Special Characters

This page contains a list of special characters along with the appropriate HTML character code to get the appropriate character. The coloumn char shows the character. If nothing is shown, your browser and/or character set cannot display the character (AFAIK most Windows character sets have a square for the missing characters, so this may also be shown). Originally I planned to have a second coloumn with a small image for each character of what it should look like, but since that seems to be quite some task, even if you make a script for it, I will stick to the character for now.
