Abstract 

One of the features of HTML is that it allows authors to include characters
and symbols in the text that cannot be typed in. In HTML2, these so-called
character entities are limited to letters with accents and some typographic 
symbols.
HTML doesn't yet allow character entities for mathematical symbols and other
common signs. Authors have to resort to inline images for these. This document
defines a list of some of those `other' symbols for use in future versions of 
HTML.
