Copyright Symbol Tip

If you want to produce the copyright symbol: in your articles…


Here’s the HTML Code for it:

Simply copying and pasting from MS Word might not do it. Best to use the HTML code: ©

A good format to list your article copyright:

Copyright © 2005 Your Name – All Rights Reserved.

Chris: you just inspired me to look up HTML symbol codes! Thanks. Keep this link for your own use, or post it on the blog if you like.

Also, it’s fairly quick to go to MS Word (which you can open as a new window without exiting a website or another program) and go to Insert/Symbol/Special Characters and then copy the inserted © symbol and paste it into your blog entry or comment or whatever you are working on as I have done here.

Did you notice how our blog software did not convert your copyright symbol  into what you had intended?

This is very common when converting from MS Word ASCII symbols to HTML code. ©

I’m no HTML expert, so we’re all learning this together. :-)

Hi again,

Chris, as you know from my relentless (failed) attempts to publish HTML articles in my name this weekend, yes, there is some sort of “translation” problem that happens when trying to enter html code and symbols into article submission boxes (even ).

My personal as yet unproven theory is this:

If you type HTML symbol code into your article and hit SUBMIT the first time, it accepts and translates the code.

HOWEVER, if you go back and modify the article, you have to remember to scan through the entire thing and retype the HTML symbol code everywhere it appears.

If you don’t do this, the already-translated code which now looks like the actual symbols instead of the code for the symbols, will be rejected by the article software.

So, as always but especially in this case, it’s a pretty good idea to save your article text in a program that won’t translate your code.

There’s a pretty good site here that I use that shows a lot of these things. Not sure if it’s got all the answers though.
