Can I type these characters directly into HTML or do I have to use ASCI code

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.
