Dr. Mark A. Foster's Guide to Using the Extended ASCII Character Set (for PCs with the <ALT> key and all platforms with HTML tags)

To incorporate extended ASCII into documents using the <ALT> key (for PC users), first, depress the <Num Lock> key. Second, while holding down the <ALT> key (on the right-hand side of the keyboard), type (sequentially) the number codes provided (again, on the right-hand side of the keyboard). Finally, release the <ALT> and <Num Lock> keys.
