HTML Codes for Currency

HTML codes to put currency characters on your Web page

The following list includes the HTML codes for currency characters not in the standard character set. Not all browsers support all the codes, so be sure to test your HTML codes before you use them.

Some currency characters are part of the Unicode character set, so you need to declare that in the head of your documents:

<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8" />
