Reserved characters

The following characters should not be rendered by any browser. However, MS Windows uses the character set Code Page 1252 (CP1252), which is a superset of ISO 8859-1, defining several characters between 128 and 159. HTML authors should be using the ISO 10646 replacements for these, which will be understood by HTML 4.0 compliant browsers. MS Windows browsers can then render these by displaying the appropriate CP1252 character.

In practice, most modern browsers will render these as in CP1252 for compatibility, but their use should nevertheless be avoided.
