Special Character Reference

The following reference table is from the Webmonkey Special Character reference page, a link that I’ve kept for at least a decade (http://www.webmonkey.com/webmonkey/reference/special_characters/), now owned and redirected to Wired. The link broke the other day and I commented about it on Twitter. They heard my cry and put it back. Or at least fixed my bookmark with a nice redirect.

Just in case it happens again, I’ve swiped it and posted below for my own reference:
