§To obtain an ALT Character:

  1. Make certain that the Num Lock key has been pressed to activate the numeric key section of the keyboard.
  2. Depress the Alt key.
  3. While the Alt key is depressed, type the proper sequence of numbers (on the numeric keypad) of the ALT code from the table above.
  4. Release the Alt key, and the character will appear.

*There are some gaps in the numerical sequence of ALT Character codes because either those items do not exist, or else they are duplicates of characters listed elsewhere.  Many Special ALT Characters, Special HTML Characters, and Special <Font Face="Symbol"> Characters are the same.

Some word processing programs and browsers will not recognize all Alt characters.
