Spicing up your blog and comments with special characters

My owner is a marketing & business consultant in San Diego.This past week I visited several blogs that were talking about some of the cool symbols that you can insert into your blog posts or comments if you know their secret codes.

Back in the pre-Windows days of DOS, these were called ASCII characters (probably still are), and since I owned a word processing business, I needed to use these special characters to make my work look professional. I needed to know how to create an n with a tilde (ñ), or an e with an acute (é), or one-quarter (¼), half (½), and three-quarter (¾) symbols for equations.

When I started my word processing business, I applied for work with Leon Jaworski's Houston law firm. Jaworski was the 1974 Watergate Special Prosecutor. I got the job because my sample legal work used legal symbols (§, ¶, ™, ©, ®) rather than writing them in as my competition did. Sometimes the little things can win you the big things.

Apple Corps, Inc., home of The BeatlesHerewith, then, are the ASCII codes for lots of symbols. Just hold your ALT key down and type the code on your numeric keypad at the right side of your keyboard. Using the number keys at the top of your keyboard DOES NOT work. I've used the standard three-digit code here, but if it doesn't work on your computer, try adding a zero in front of the three-digit code to make it a four-digit code. That often works.

On Apple computers, I believe you use the Option key instead of the ALT key, but I haven't used an Apple computer in 16 years and haven't owned one in 30 years, so I'll let the Apple crowd weigh in if they would care to. As far as I'm concerned, only The Beatles have the right to use Apple for their company logo -- LOL.

A future post today or tomorrow will introduce you to an easy method to get the secret code for just about any special character you can dream up.

You can keep on going but most of the remaining numbers give you duplicates of what I've given you above. However, you might find a couple of interesting symbols here and there, and adding a leading zero to make it a four-digit code could give you some interesting symbols on your computer or in your software. The codes I've given you above are pretty much universal regardless of what software you are using or what type of computer you have.

So have a ♥ and ☺!

Thanks Bob and Leilani.  I am always wanting to spice up anything I do with symbols and that was very informative.
