The “Ampersand” Commands.


The ampersand command is “&” is pronounced “amp-er-sand” and is quite useful. I use them all over this site to create characters that are not found on the keyboard or to make command characters show up on the page.

This is what I Mean

If you would like a copyright insignia ©. Well, there isn’t any copyright on the keyboard which means you’ll need to either create it as a graphic or use an “&” command to put it in your pages. I.E. ©.

Have you also noticed that all over my pages I have things like these <HTML>, <BODY>, <FONT>,<P>, </B> commands that are used in the HTML coding. Don’t you find it strange that if I enclose anything in < > brackets that it should show up on the page? It is showing up because I am doing is using an “&” command to create the greater-than (&gt; = >) and less-than sign (&lt; = <).

Here’s Why

Your browser reads commands inside of greater-than (>) and less-than (<) brackets. It also reads the commands inside of the “&” (ampersand) and “;” (semicolon) insignia?

Those who create the HTML code have created a heap of these commands that sit inside of an “&” and “;”. Now all you need to know is the letter code that goes between the “&” and the “;” and you will be placing little insignias all over your pages as well.

The code to go into the “&” and the “;” varies. e.g. &nbsp; The nbsp in this case stands for Non-Breaking Space and this creates a blank space in the code so if you were to write this piece of code into your document: <p>There are ten spaces here &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; and here. There are five spaces here &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; between this.</p> you would get this result.

There are ten spaces here           and here. There are five spaces here     between this.

This chart shows as many “&” commands as I could find, it is by no means all of them.

Remember: You do not place these codes inside of < and > tags. They appear just as in the chart below and they always begin with an “&” and end with a “;”. Each table square has one code and the symbol is under it.

The
"Ampersand"
and the
"ASCII Tables"

You will note that we have not got all the ASCII table because some of the characters do not work in the HTML format.


REMEMBER: The same rule applies as above that they must sit inside of an “&” and “;”.   I believe that I have all the ones that work in HTML but if I don’t please inform me so I can put them in. Some of these have more than one codes for the same symbol as in &#146; and &#8217; both give us( ) while &#153;, &#8482; and &trade; all give us ( ).

The common “hyphen”

The character commonly known as hyphen originated in early typewriters. The character repertoire had to be kept small, so several characters such as hyphen, en dash, em dash and minus sign were lumped together. In modern character code standards, the character is called “hyphen-minus” to reflect its ambiguity but it’s really more ambiguous than the name suggests. It is best to call it “Ascii hyphen”.

This document discusses various dashes and hyphens’—loosely speaking, those characters for which we have used Ascii hyphens as surrogates, in lack of anything better.
