Get the complete character code for an accented letter by hovering your mouse pointer over it.

Look up the accented letter you need the HTML code for.
The full HTML code can be built by an ampersand (&), followed by the unaccented letter (case sensitive), followed by the accent "code" from the Accent Code column.
Finally, append a semi-colon (;) at the end.

So, suppose you need the code for â.
You will find it in the A column on the circ (or circumflex) row.
The code you need is an ampersand &, followed by the unaccented letter a (case sensitive), followed by the string circ (found in the Accent Code column, in the same row as the character) and a semi-colon ;.
So the code for â is: â

Notes: (1) Character codes are case sensitive!
  (2) Decimal numbers correspond to the ISO 8859-1 character set.
