ASCII characters (emoticons and smileys like heart) using your PC keyboard ALT key [TECH]

I thought I’d create my own page for these codes as I’m always having to search for the right page.  These little ALT codes are often used inside text forms on websites such as Facebook and Twitter (where people set their status’).  The most used ones seem to be emoticons (or smileys) such the heart ♥ and the smiley face ☺ and useful to perhaps web designers like using the copyright symbol ©

How to do it!

You need a full sized keyboard where you have the numeric keypad area (the part with numbers). These codes do not work with the numbers above the main QWERTY keys.

Now to make it work! Simply press and hold the ALT key on your keyboard (the ALT key at the left of the space bar (does not work with the ALT GR key to the right of the space bar) and then type the code of the key you want, then release the ALT key.

The full list is below but here are what I think are the most used ones ☺
