ASCII Chart of Symbols - part 2

ASCII Chart of Symbols
(part 2)

This is a continuation list of my preferred ASCII Chart of Symbols and Characters.  For the first partial listing, please click here :  ASCII Chart of Symbols - Part 1

Again, to generate these symbols or characters, your must :

• press and hold the "Alt" key down

• type the numbers in from the numeric keypad on the right side of the keyboard

• then let go of the buttons ...and the character will appear.

I have not included those characters that can be pressed in the keyboards directly.  I had also excluded those almost-useless-to-common-guy characters.   Like this character for example: "   " and " "  .  Unless your are a programmer, characters like these are of no use to a common guy.
