If you write anything scientific or mathematical on the internet, you will quickly find the need for several special characters that are not readily available on your keyboard.

This table contains many Greek letters but not all of them. It only contains upper and lowercase letters that are not available on a keyboard.

For example: the capital alpha A could be typed with a regular capital A or with the code & #913 or & Alpha.

The results are the same.

These codes are presented with an extra space between the ampersand and the code. To use these codes, delete the extra space. It should be mentioned that not all symbols are supported by all browsers. Check before you publish.

More complete code lists are available.
