How to use unicode letters within a HTML page?

P: 14
I need to use Sinhalese language Unicode letters within my personal web site. How can I do that ? Are their any special tags to insert Unicode letters?

Final result should be like this web page. There are Sinhalese letters and they are displayed on the browser.

Dear Udara,

Maybe this website will help you. It appears correctly (Unicode) in Chrome...

there are no special tags to insert unicode. however, you need to
- encode the HTML file in Unicode
- tell the browser to use an Unicode charset (via <meta> or MIME (server-side))

and of course, the end user needs to have a font installed that supports singhalese characters.
