HTML special characters

to write in HTML the special characters(like: ,,,%...), do I need to write the code every time I use them, or can I create a set of the ones I use? How and in what part of my HTML page, can I write the set?

I do not understand your question. Since it is only text, you type them in when you need them in your HTML form. So I do not understand what you mean by making a 'list'. Like in an HTML IDE application which usually has these characters in a drop-down or pool?

Please explain.

Yes, they need to be written for each character. Make sure you are set to utf-8 and you use the entity character set (entity? Not sure that sounds right)

not to sure what you want but you can make a library item for ,,,%...
that is if you're using DreamWeaver.

ps you could also make a notpad and same it and have it open all the time. when you need it copy it and then paste it in your html doc.
