Ultimate Cool Characters

Here you will find a wealth of special characters not found on your keyboard. Ever wanted to know how to make an "i" with those two little dots above it? How about a multiplication sign? A heart? A smiley face? A bunch of different letters with squiggly things under them? Ỹổů’ṽẻ čøm̉ę ŧỡ ţĥë ŕıġħť p̀łắĉễ.

Unlike most similar lists, Ultimate Cool Characters has more than just those so-called alt codes that we all know so well. It was painstakingly compiled to include a whole lot of weird characters that you have probably never seen before. Feel free to use any of them in your web pages and documents. After all, I didn't make these up; I just compiled them.

Before going to the trouble of memorizing some of these codes, make sure you aren't using an "International" keyboard layout that makes the typing of special characters much easier (usually through the use of the AltGr key, defined to be the right Alt key, or something similar).

Here's a printer-friendly version... just make sure you have several dozen pages and plenty of ink. Print Preview is your friend.

Be sure to check out Joshua McGee's Diacritic Decoration, which turns ordinary text into accented characters from this page.

How to Use These Characters

On web pages

Enter the Name Code or Number Code where you want the character to appear. For combining diacritical marks, enter the Number Code for the desired mark immediately after the character you would like to add it to.

On Windows

While holding the Alt key, press the numbers of the Alt Code on your computer's numeric keypad. Microsoft Word allows other options: you can type the Character Code and press Alt-X, or you can enter the Shortcut Key.

On Linux (GNOME)

While holding Ctrl and Shift, press U followed by the Character Code (with or without leading zeroes). On versions of GNOME prior to 2.16 or so, omit the U. This combination works in GTK applications only.

On Linux (KDE)

Not sure. Is this how?

On Mac OS X

Enter the Accent Code. For example, "Option + u, o" means hold Option and U at the same time, then let go and press O.
