Chapter 4: Review

In this chapter we learned about special characters. They can be represented by a sequence of characters, all of which start with an & and end with a ;.

There are logical names for many of these characters such as: <, >, &, ", ç, etc.

All characters in the ISO Latin-1 character set have a numeric representation ranging from 0 to 255. To properly represent these characters in HTML you use the following escape sequence. Start with an ampersand, &, immediately followed by a number sign, #, then a number from 0 to 255, and end with a semicolon, ;.

Remember you can always look up the logical and numerical representation of the characters that make up the ISO Latin-1 character set by looking at the table.

This concludes the chapter on special characters.

I am ready to go to the next chapter.
