HTML Code for ASCII Special Characters, are still needed, when writing HTML. American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII), was developed a long time ago, as a numerical representation of characters. Believe it or not, ASCII is still found at the core of HTML. I have a lot of the HTML Code for ASCII Special Characters memorized, but I’m always looking one or another of them up. So, I’ve created my own “HTML Code for ASCII Special Characters” tables, as a guide.
