Font Tables as Rendered by your browser


Browser and Operating System Warning:  Results may vary depending on your browser, your installed fonts, and your font codepages.  Font sizes are hard coded to make sure you can see differences in the fonts.
You will have to use Internet Explorer for this as Firefox, Mozilla, Netscape, and Opera do not recognize wingdings and webdings fonts (unless you modify them to recognize these fonts).

SYMBOLS for HTML and Excel use
Excel characters as seen in the US (windows-1252)
Escapes, tokens (symbols.htm#escapes)
Checkmarks, Tickmarks (symbols.htm#ticks)
Keying Characters into MS Excel (symbols.htm#msExcel) use of CharMap
To type the paragraph symbol (¶), use ALT+0182, the number must be from the numeric keypad (Europe use RtAlt+0182)

For Excel to use a different font you must use the font drop down box.  In word if you copy a character you copy both the character and the font.

The following table as seen on my system is what I see with the Character Map set to
  [x] Advanced View, Character Set:  Windows Western, Group By: All.

If you want to find additional symbols, switch to [x] Advanced View, Character Set:  Unicode, Group By: All.

The Mathematical Operators subgroup of unicode symbols can be found near the bottom of this web page.

If you see the same character in all fonts then you have overriden the web page fonts with -- Tools, Internet Options, General, Accessibility (button), Ignore font styles specified on web pages. (default font is specified from the Fonts button. (Am looking for some bookmarklets to switch between)

If you are using Mozilla or Firefox as you browser you won't see these characters unless you install the Windows fonts you already have when you are using Excel.
