HTML Character Sets

In addition to the standard ISO-8859-1 (Latin-1) character repertoire, we have included a selection of Unicode characters. This is designed as a look-up reference for contributors.

Characters above #160 are sorted by function (alphabetic, diacritic, punctuation, and math/currency), and 63 GIFs are provided for the characters not in the {union set} of {ISO-8859-1} and {Macintosh} (U.S.) character sets.
