List of character, symbol & sign names

Below is an overview of 85 frequently used characters, punctuation symbols or signs that are included in most fonts. These include punctuation marks and other symbols used in typography. Technically these character shapes are called glyphs. Next to each glyph name the Unicode and HTML entity are listed, as well as the ASCII code and HTML entity if these are available. I also listed the Windows ALT keystroke or the Mac equivalent that can be used to insert the character in a text.
The typeface used for most examples is Arial Bold. Small lines indicate the baseline, x-height, and the ascender and descender heights.

30 thoughts on “List of character, symbol & sign names

  1. The opening section shows an “opening single quotation mark” but links to the Apostrophe section.

    The Apostrophe section describes the apostrophe as using the same symbol as the “closing single quotation mark” which is correct. However, the symbol shown is neither – it is a one-size-fits-all variant. The version in the heading of the Apostrophe section is different again, but more like the opening single quotation mark.

    However, much of this summary was helpful. I learned a few things. Thank you.

    1. Thanks for the feedback. I fixed the issue with the wrong character showing in the intro. I think the wrong character got inserted by the autocorrect function of the online spell checker I use. Opening and closing marks still need to be added to this page.

  2. The solidus “/” seems to have undergone a change since the internet came along.
    Before the internet, Microsoft DOS came along, and it uses “\” as its path separator.
    It was common to say “Backslash” and make my students understand what I meant, because the “slash” was rarely used in the (at-least my own) computer world.
    Then along came the internet, which of course uses the “/” as a path separator.
    Now, I find each and every student asking for clarification when I say “slash”, and not just a few times, but each and every time since the internet started. They ask, “Do you mean Forward Slash or Backward Slash?”, which, until recent days, were both incorrect. But now the “Slash” is readily called the “Forward Slash”, and the “Backslash” is readily called the “Backward Slash”.

  3. Thanks for this – it’s bookmarked! What’s a “libra” symbol as noted in the “Almost Equal To” definition?

    1. It is this one: ♎. Libra is a zodiac sign, normally represented by weighing scales. A balance does refer to things being equal, so in that sense I understand its use in a similar fashion to ‘Almost equal to’. I copied this from some reference page but did not find any other sources confirming this use case. That is why I now removed the reference from this page.

    1. That string contains two of the ‘Javanese rerenggan’ symbols—the left (꧁) and right (꧂) versions, aptly named thus.

  4. I have a 2011 MacBook Pro which I ordered with a Hiragana keyboard. I prefer the Geneva font for most English work, but can’t determine how to create a ¥ glyph with it. The keyboard has a ¥ key, and it creates the ¥ glyph in other fonts. But using Geneva, that key produces a \ glyph. So does option + y.

    The ¥ glyph is within Geneva, and I have a sample of it which I can paste into text. But thus far I’ve been unable to determine how to create it with my Hiragana keyboard (in roman character mode).

    Does anyone know how to do it?

    Thanks bunches!

  5. Yes! Let me add my “Thanks” Laurens!As you can see I use the Ø char. frequently. Ham radio operators use that to distinguish the zero from a cap. o I keep a couple of the keyboard codes written on the bottom of my keyboard for quick access. It would be nice if the valuable tools you’ve provided could be put in a ‘printable’ form, perhaps in columns on a single sheet, front & back. Thanks again Laurens and Merry Christmas 2011 (or happy Hanukkah. as the case may be.) *<:-{ <= that's a Santa.

    Floyd.

    1. I never heard it called “Hash” until Twitter came along. Until then, it was always called a “Hash Mark”

  6. Tilde is used in Spanish for marking the ‘en-yay’ character as used in ‘señor’. ‘Say-nyor’.

    Not same as ‘n’. For example, ‘mañana’ (tomorrow) uses both ‘n’ forms.

  7. Waoh, this is so helpful. I had assumed a lot didnt know what some of these signs mean. However, could you help tell me what the sign ’tilde’ means, I have seen it used seeverally.

    Thanks/Janet
