Inserting Special Characters

You can add special characters, such as the Euro, copyright, or trademark symbol, to your page in Dreamweaver without having to remember their bizarre HTML equivalents or odd keyboard combinations. In Dreamweaver, relief is just a menu choice away.

To insert a special character:

  1. Click in the page to place the insertion point where you want the special character to appear.
  2. In the Text category of the Insert panel, choose the character you want from the Characters pop-up menu red_circle_a.jpg.

    or

    Choose Insert > HTML > Special Characters, and then choose the special character you want from the submenu.

    or

    If the character you want doesn’t appear in the menu, choose Other Characters from the pop-up menu in the Insert panel or choose Other from the Insert > HTML > Special Characters submenu. The Insert Other Character dialog appears red_circle_b.jpg.

  3. Click the character you want to use, and then click OK to close the dialog.

    Dreamweaver inserts the special character on your page.
