Revision as of 04:43, 31 October 2013

Symbols and other special characters not available on your keyboard can be inserted through a special sequence of characters. These sequences are called HTML entities. For example, the following sequence (entity) when inserted will be shown as right arrow HTML symbol → and when inserted will be shown as an em dash HTML symbol — .


HTML symbol entities

Subscripts:
x1 x2 x3 or
x₀ x₁ x₂ x₃ x₄
x₅ x₆ x₇ x₈ x₉

Superscripts:
x1 x2 x3 or
x⁰ x¹ x² x³ x⁴
x⁵ x⁶ x⁷ x⁸ x⁹

Combined:
ε0 = 8.85 × 10−12 C² / J m.
1 Hectare = 1 E4 m²

  • The latter methods of sub/superscripting cannot be used in the most general context, as they rely on Unicode support which may not be present on all users' machines. For the 1-2-3 superscripts, it is nevertheless preferred when possible (as with units of measurement) because most browsers have an easier time formatting lines with it.
