Special Characters

Some characters must be treated specially, using character entities:

EntityCharacterDescription
& & ampersand
" " double quotation mark
&lt; < less-than sign
&gt; > greater-than sign
&apos; ' apostrophe

Any other characters which are not on your keyboard can either be entered as numeric entities (see, eg, http://www.tedmontgomery.com/tutorial/HTMLchrc.html) or using UTF-8. How you enter UTF-8 on your keyboard depends on your application or operating system. oXygen, for example, has a facility [Edit/Enter from Character Map] to let you enter characters which are not on the keyboard.
