Keyboard Special Characters

What is a Special Character?

A special character is a character that is not an alphabetic or numeric character. Punctuation marks and other symbols are examples of special characters. Unlike alphanumeric characters, special characters may have multiple uses. For example, when creating a web page with HTML, the quote (“) symbol is used to store attribute values. Because the quote is used in HTML, to use it on a web page, the extended special HTML character code “"” needs to be used. Also, like HTML, special characters may need to be escaped when used in the programming languages and command line to prevent problems.
