ISO-8859-1 character set (html coded characters)

I got tired of looking up the special characters for HTML and more importantly XSLT, so I decided to put them here for easy reference.

In HTML, you can use use specific code positions to display special characters. For example   is equivalent to placing a space in your text, in other words, a non-breaking space; and © is the equivalent of placing a copyright sign on the page, i.e., ©

However, in XSLT you are not allowed to use these types of characters, you need to use the ISO-8859-1 character set. The biggest difference being, these characters have a hash mark just after the & which makes the XSLT processor happy. So, instead of inserting   as a non breaking space, you'd insert   and instead of © you'd use ©

Note: these characters are not limited in use to XSLT pages, they are just as acceptable in an HTML file as demonstrated in the "Visual" column below.
