You can find the HTML characters here:

For example, to get a "not equal" character, ≠, you would type the character string

&#8800

immediately followed by a semicolon.

I'm tossing in the towel. If I type ≠ I get ≠

And I just don't under stand in the other post the:

&ne

[&ne]



[&#8800]



[&#8800]





<8800>

Ignore my messages in the Test section. I was just trying out different things. To make a "not equal" sign:

Edit a message.

Type the following as one string without the spaces:

& # 8 8 0 0 ;

Then use Preview to look at it. You should see:

Yes, thanks, it did indeed work. It's different from special characters like , , or , just to cite a few. These appear immediately after typing, as opposed to being created when doing a Preview or Post. I tried it on two other forums that I frequent and it worked on one, but not on the other. But this is the forum where it would have the most use.
