“SPECIAL” special characters

As web developers, we use special characters quite often, but we often find that the lists of HTML special characters out there don’t usually contain characters that are “special” enough (after all, it isn’t so difficult to find out and memorize © as the special character for the copyright symbol). Therefore, we compiled our own list of “special” special characters.

This is, obviously, not an exhaustive list. If you find yourself needing the HTML entity code for a special character, amp-what is a great resource. All you have to do is copy and paste a special character, and its powerful search engine will do the hard work for you.
