Appendix A. Unicode Escape Sequences for Latin 1 Characters

Table A-1 lists the characters in the Latin 1 character repertoire, with Unicode equivalents in the range of U+0000 to U+00FF (that is, C0 Controls, Basic Latin, C1 Controls, and Latin 1 Supplemental). It is reproduced from Appendix B of ActionScript for Flash MX: The Definitive Guide with the gracious permission of the author, Colin Moock.

The table’s first column (labeled Dec) lists each character’s code point in decimal (the standard ASCII or Latin 1 value), the second column provides the Unicode escape sequence for the character, and the third column describes or shows the character itself.
