Have you ever found yourself needing to include a copyright symbol or registered trademark symbol when coding in HTML?

Here’s some basic HTML code for everyday characters and symbols you may find yourself needing:

© copyright sign – ©

® registered trade mark sign – ®

£ pound sign – £

¥ yen sign – ¥

¿ inverted question mark – ¿

à latin small letter a with grave – à

ã in small letter a with tilde – ã

ö latin small letter o with diaeresis – ö

If we missed your favorite or most commonly used HTML character code, please add it to the discussion thread.

And if you have your own TR Community tip, please send it to so that we can feature in the TR Out Loud blog.
