# HTML Symbol Entities

HTML supports a variety of entity symbols which can be entered using either numbers or an entity name. The number or name is preceded by the ‘&’ sign and ends in a semi-colon (;). To enter a symbol switch to HTML view in the editor and enter the number or name (Ω for example).

Cut and past is also supported. Select the symbol from this page, ‘ctrl C’ to copy. Position the cursor in the editor and ‘ctrl V’ to paste.

## ASCI Codes

In addition to HTML symbol entities, it is sometimes useful to be able to quickly enter symbols using ASCI codes.

The enter a symbol using ASCI codes, press 'Alt' and type the code on the number keypad.

The following table lists some of the more useful codes for your posts:

Arrows | Greek | Other | |
---|---|---|---|

↨ - 23, up and down arrow ↑ - 24, up arrow ↓ - 25, down arrow → - 26, right arrow ← - 27, left arrow ↔ - 29, left and right arrow | α - 224, Alpha Γ - 226, Gamma π - 227, Pi Σ - 228, summation σ - 229, Sigma µ - 230, Mu τ - 231, Tau Φ - 232, Phi Θ -233, Theta Ω - 234, Omega δ - 235, delta ∞ - 236, infinity φ - 237, Phi ε - 238, Epsilon | ≡ - 240, equivalent symbol ± - 241, plus or minus ≥ - 242, greater or equal ≤ -243 less or equal ÷ - 246, division ≈ - 247 approximate ° - 248, degree symbol √ - 251, square root | Example: To enter Ω, press the ‘Alt’ key and enter 234 on the numeric keypad. |
