* These characters don't have a name code.

1The three fraction symbols (1/4, 1/2, and 3/4) appear only in Windows. There's no way to code them to display on a Mac.
2The break bar does not display at all in Netscape 4 for Mac. On Explorer for Mac, it appears as a solid, vertical line.
3To get a degree symbol in Windows, use &#186; or the name code (&deg;). To get a degree symbol on a Mac, use &#154;. The degree name code on the Mac results in a small, filled circle.
4The superscripted numerals 1, 2, and 3 do not display at all in Netscape for Mac and display as regular numbers in Explorer for Mac.
