Instructions For Using the Code Charts

The ASCII or ALT codes allow the user to enter the character directly in many programs, such as Word and Photoshop. Not all codes will work in all programs. To enter a code, make sure Num Lock is on, use the numeric keypad, and press the ALT key as you type the number. As you will notice, some characters have two ALT code numbers.
