This article details the Latin-1 character references and corresponding entity references available to your XHTML 1.0 documents. This is the first of a series of three articles detailing each of the three sets laid out in the XHTML DTDs.
An explanation of character references will be given in part two of my article XHTML Web Design for Beginners. I decided to release these tables as separate articles in order to make them easily accessible to those who don’t want to read the series.
What the columns mean
The first column gives the named version of the entity, the second is the named entity itself. This allows you to see if that character reference works in the browser you are using to view this document via the named entity.
The third column gives the numeric entity, the fourth is the numeric entity itself. This allows you to see if that character reference works in the browser you are using to view this document via the numeric entity.
The fifth column is the description of the entity as found in the XHTML 1.0 DTDs at http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/dtds.html#a_dtd_Latin-1_characters.
