About The Codes

Use these codes if you need to insert a word or short phrase within a multilingual text. You should also make sure that the Web page encoding is set to Unicode.

Using the Entity Codes

The Unicode numeric entity codes can be expressed as either decimal numbers or hexadecimal numbers. To input right-to-left text in Unicode, type the entity codes in "normal" sequential order and the browser will automatically display characters in right to left order.

For instance, the decimal version of the Japanese さん (-san honorific) would be
&‌#12373;&‌#12435;

The hexadecimal of Hebrew version of the Japanese さん (-san honorific) would be
&‌#x3055;&‌#x3093;
Note that the hexadecimal numbers include x as part of the code.

Windows Word Numeric Alt Codes

Use ALT plus the decimal version of any code to input it into a Windows document.

Note: These work only in Word for Windows. Users with other software or versions of Windows may wish to use the Character Map instead.

OS X Option Codes

If an application supports the Unicode Hex input Keyboard, then use Option plusthe hexadecimal number.
