HTML Goodies. XHTML Special Characters. Character Entity References in HTML 4 and XHTML 1.0 Here is a set of tables containing the 252 allowed entities in HTML 4 and XHTML 1.0, as described in section 24 of the official HTML 4 specifications, published by the W3C.
I have divided them into my own, hopefully logical, categories: Each table has five columns. The first column contains the entity reference, in the form &entity_name;, that is, an ampersand, the entity name, and then a semi colon. The second column displays how that entity appears in your browser. The fifth column contains a description of the character, and an occasional note. There are many ways to order character entities. For more information on how to use these entities in your Web pages, see HTML, XHTML, and CSS, Sixth Edition by Elizabeth Castro. Entities for characters with special meaning in HTML and XHTML Entities for accented characters, accents, and other diacritics from Western European Languages Entities for punctuation characters.
Modernizr. Html5shiv - HTML5 IE enabling script. Dual licensed under the MIT or GPL Version 2 licenses Full original, uncompressed source available here: Source code adds new HTML5 elements (which is simple code), but also supports printing HTML5 elements and includes the default styles for HTML5 elements, like block on article and section.
Getting it to work in the browser was easy, @jon_neal and afarkas made IE actually print HTML5 elements - these guys are to take all the credit. Please take a moment to thank them! To use this script, download the html5shiv and roll it in to your own code (ideally minified). Common question: what's the difference between the html5shim and the html5shiv? HTML 5 Outliner.
