ISO-8859-1 Character Set


The ISO-8859-1 character set (often referred to as ASCII) is commonly used in web pages. Codes can be inserted into HTML as &#xxx;. For example, ‡ will be displayed as the double dagger. Many of the codes also have mnemonic codes, such as & for the ampersand (&). Note that the hash mark (#) is not used for these codes.

A non-standard encoding scheme found in HTML generated on Windows computers is Code Page 1252 (and usually the HTML code does not indicate this). A good sign is the occurrence of four digit codes within the HTML source, such as –. A useful cross reference is at kostis.net/charsets/cp1252.htm
