List of character, symbol & sign names - Ajeetwriting

Sometimes we don’t know the sign name, the character,  and the Symbols name. Like some time when I see some symbol and I forgot the name so that’s the reason I have written this blog even tho I don’t even get any traffic on this blog but still, it’s knowledgeable information so I have written it. I hope you will find it informative.

List of characters, symbols & sign names

Below is an overview of 85 constantly used characters, punctuation symbols, or signs that are included in utmost sources. These include punctuation marks and other symbols used in typography. Technically these character shapes are called characters. Next to each icon name the Unicode and HTML reality are listed, as well as the ASCII law and HTML reality if these are available. I also listed the Windows ALT keystroke or the Mac fellow that can be used to fit the character in a textbook. 

 The typeface used for utmost exemplifications is Arial Bold. Small lines indicate the birth,  x-height, and ascender and descender heights.
