Character Entities


Character entities, like escape codes, allow you to insert characters even if you cannot type them in directly. Simply insert the code where you want the character to appear.

note: Letter codes are case-sensitive.

Avoid using the number codes; they are not very portable. Also, if there's a problem with the letter codes, at least the reader can guess at what's supposed to be there.
