HTML Codes for French

HTML codes to put French characters on your Web page

The following list includes the HTML codes for French 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 French 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" />
