Case by Case: Working with Character Entities
In order to assist you in demonstrating how character entities work, I took several screen shots from each character entity set (see Figures 3.1, 3.2, and 3.3). Your mission is to re-create the appearance of the shot using the appropriate entities.
Figure 3.1 Choose from the primary entity set to re-create this image.
Figure 3.2 Using the symbol, Greek, and mathematical entity set, re-create this image.
Figure 3.3 Using markup-significant characters, reproduce this image.
The em dash character is not supported in IE5 and below, but it is supported in IE 6, as well as Netscape 6. Be sure to test your work with one of those browsers to see the results.
