Does your browser display
special characters correctly?

The upper half of the Latin-1 character set includes symbols used in English text such as the copyright symbol, some fractions, and a centered dot; plus letters used in other West European languages. It often takes a bit of work to get web browsers to display special characters correctly. In some cases (i.e. the Macintosh version of Netscape) it's impossible.

The table below will help you determine if your browser is displaying these characters correctly. There are 3 ways to invoke each character in HTML: using an entity name such as " &Oacute ", or using a decimal number such as " &#211 ", or using the 8-bit character directly such as " ". This table will test your browser for compliance with all 3 methods.

Items marked *M are the ones displayed incorrectly by Netscape Navigator for Macintosh versions 1 through 4.
