Typing Special Characters

ANSI:
The extended ANSI (pronounced annsee) character set. These should work on most Windows-equipped computers. It should be noted that, for reasons we won't go into here, some characters may not display correctly. An example is the Euro currency character, 0128. Even if you can see it properly, you may not be able to print it properly. As usual, the best approach is trial and error. All the characters in the ASCII table below should display and print properly. See tips above on getting the best results.
To get these characters to print, hold down the Alt key, and key in the appropriate code. Use the numeric keypad, and make sure the "num lock" is on (green light on the keyboard, top right).

ASCII:
The basic ASCII (pronounced asskee) character set. These should work on most IBM compatible computers, even the really old ones. I think the ANSI set grew out of this set, but I could be wrong.
These work the same way as the ANSI characters above, with the Alt key held down.
