When I surfed the Web, I always ran into 3 problems with character listings: They contained tons of characters I didn't useThere was no one list that brought together all the characters I neededThe fonts were too small and the page was difficult to use So I made my own listing page containing the best HTML characters I felt would be useful to everyone, especially web developers.

We knew we needed to update the information on the cheat sheet, but we weren’t comfortable with simply adjusting one or two figures on the blog post and leaving it as-is.
