How can I type a vertical line on my keyboard?
Posted 07 March 2006 - 04:48 AM
This may sound like a silly question, but how do I get the vertical line on my keyboard (the one directly under the Esc key)? I want to use it for the title on my web page.
I have tried various ways without success and I can only get the other 2 characters on the key.

that key has 3 charactors on it, but i can't get the vertical line.
I held down the left ALT key and typed 0166, i got 0166. what was supposed to happen?
This is the icon i want..... |
I can cut and paist it, but i cant seem to type it, which is what i want to do.
I have a normal keyboard as far as i know, just a basic one.
any help appreciated.

To do any character with alt + number, you need to use the numeric keypad, not the regular numbers on the top of the keyboard.
(ie ALT then type the numbers using the keypad, then release alt)
Interestingly the cre8 post box seems not to work with this method (using firefox, not tried in ie)
If you just want to display the char in HTML use
hmm interesting, the
thingyalso converts <brvbar; to the actual symbol, rather than showing it "as is" as a code qoute should. GRrrrr and the forum converts the ampersand lt; to a actual < so its pretty hard to explain...
So summary : Use
no spaces, use a real ampersand not the word to get the pipe in a html doc.
Alt + num pad and numbers shown to get it otherwise
(or see if your keyboard mappings are for the wrong country for your keyboard in control panel)
