HTML Codes for Greek Letters

Writing online about scientific or mathematical topics, you’ll notice you need to write a lot of Greek letters. You’ll also have trouble finding these letters on your keyboard. This table will help you with the HTML codes for Greek letters. The table contains both capital and lower case letters, a visual example, and the HTML code for each letter.

It should be noted not all online fonts support these codes. Most common fonts do support the extra characters, but some specialty fonts do not include these characters. Check before you publish your document.

HTML Codes for Greek Letters

Some letters are identical to the alphabet you’re used to. For example, the capital alpha ( A ) could be coded with the code & #913; or & Alpha; but it is much easier to just use the Shift-A on your keyboard. The end result will be the same. These letters are included in the table.
