How do I add the copyright symbol to my webpage?
© in your HTML and you get ©.
© The last one is easier to remember. Disadvantage is that some exotic browser can't read it, so then you have to use the number.
You type the character ©. The way you do that depends on your authoring environment. Using Windows, for example, you can use
Alt+0169 if you cannot find a more convenient way.
You need to make sure that the character encoding of the page is properly declared, but you should do that anyway.
Even if you are using a legacy encoding like windows-1252 or iso-8859-1 and not the modern UTF-8, the copyright sign © can be entered as such.
Here's a complete reference of HTML symbol/sign: http://www.ascii.cl/htmlcodes.htm.
There are several ways to get a copyright symbol into your web page:
- Copy and paste it in:
©(assuming your editor and web server agree on the character set (like
- Use the HTML named entity
- Use the numeric entity
- Type it using
<Alt>0169(also assumes your editor and web server can support extended characters properly)
