If you do a web search against "ISO Latin-1," you can find more comprehensive versions maintained by publishers and others. For example, on 16 Mar 98, I found a full ISO Latin-1 listing at this URL

There are, of course, other character sets for languages not supported by ISO Latin-1. On 16 Mar 2001, for example, I found a listing of some at URL:

Notes and remarks

1. How to write special characters with HTML--
In writing HTML, special characters given as literals are bracketed with "&" and ";". For example, "à" would be written as "-agrav;" if you substitute "&" for the initial "-". Special characters given as ASCII values are preceded by "&" and "#", and followed by ";". For example, "à" would be written as "-#224;" if you substitute "&" for the initial "-".

2. Foreign languages covered--
Having only 256 combinations to work with, ISO Latin-1 provides thorough coverage for Germanic and Scandinavian languages of northwestern Europe (including Icelandic!), and for Latin languages of southwestern Europe. Many other languages are left out.

Miscellaneous item: European quotation marks
