Windows-specific characters

Windows codepage 1252, Western European, consists of ISO-8859-1 (aka Latin-1) and some additional characters squeezed into the range 128-158 (0x80-0x9F) where there is a gap in the ISO character set, reserved for the little used C1 control characters. Similar or identical additions differenciate between other Windows codepages and the corresponding ISO-8859-x pages.

The table below gives the Windows position, the corresponding Unicode codepoints and the HTML 4.0 entity names, each followed by a HTML entity reference to these; and finally the name of the character. HTML 5 requires browsers to handle content marked as ISO-8859-1 as Windows codepage 1252.
