For music characters like ♯ ♭ Can I just type these into HTML directly from a command on my keyboard, or do I need to enter the ASCI?

I realize I could test it but with browser compatibility varying I wanted to ask an expert to give me the correct response.

When dealing with special characters it is good practice to use the HTML Unicode method per this page examples:

<p>I will display &spades;<p>
<p>I will display &#9824;<p>
<p>I will display &#x2660;<p> 

Open in new window


They will then render correctly in any browser, within the limitations of the characters available to the browser in the selected typeface.

See also the Wikipedia article on HTML and Unicode.
