Hawaiian Diacritical Marks

September 24th, 2003 by Ryan Ozawa · 3 Comments · Miscellaneous

I created a little table of ASCII codes that should display Hawaiian diacritical markings (the ‘okina and the kahakō) on a web page for my friend Andy, but I figured I might as well post it here in case it helps anyone else. Special thanks to the recently blogified Scott Crawford for helping me figure it out.

    Thanks! I’m trying to be more accurate in spelling on my site, so I’m bookmarking this chart. I really appreciate your blog!

    Thank you for providing the diacritical marks. It would also useful if you alerted folks that for other text entries you can substitute holding down the Alt key when entering the number instead of keying in the &#.
