Alt Codes Different (ASCII)

September 12, 2009 at 17:50:47
Specs: Windows Vista

I have been trying to get the following heart symbol ♥ via the Alt + 3 combination. However, this input results in nothing. And furthermore, other ASCII combinations do not match up.
Alt +
100 = d
101 = e
200 =È
201= É
245= õ
246= ö

Please help me. I have no idea why this happens. Microsoft word, Firefox, etc.. all have these same weird results.

Try it in Wordpad, I tried a few in Windows 7 Wordpad and are matching up, however they fail in Word 2007, the heart symbol ♥ via the Alt + 3 works in it, but not the others past 101.

From command prompt, use alt and the keypad 3.

What happens then?

It all depends on which font you are using. Some fonts don't even have the heart symbol.

Check the Character Map in Windows to see which key combination to use. You can use either the ASCII codes, or the ANSI codes. I usually use whichever are shorter.

Also, remember to only use the numeric keypad, not the number keys across the top of keyboard.

Not sure what's going on. Is your Number Lock on?

I've tried Alt/3 and it works every time on this Vista machine.

My Character Map shows the Times New Roman heart symbol as U+2665. Not sure why they'd be different.
