Special Alt Characters

Thursday, March 4th, 2010 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Melody via E-mail asks:

Is there a keyboard strokes list for character map symbols?

It drives me crazy trying to remember the ALT keyboard codes to make special characters. I tend to run into a problem with it while I’m gaming online or social networking, because people tend to use special characters to claim a username or handle that is already taken with normal characters.

Well, I no longer have to hunt for the codes to make those characters anymore, because I’ve found this site! It contains a large listing of the different characters you can make with your keyboard by using the ALT key and a code

You’ll find everything from music notes, smiley faces, and hearts to different letters, and arrows! You can view the listing in html and you can view it just as an image.

This is a handy site to have bookmarked, check it out today!
