I was wondering, does anyone know the ASCII code for a check mark? What about the alt+number code? I need to put check marks in a document, and would rather not hand write them. Thanks in advance.

This one: √

is character 221A in Unicode. You should have an application called charmap.exe under Windows that helps you find these.

That's the square root symbol. 221A is square root.

Weird.. your quote shows up differently than what his message actually showed in the forum. Maybe your browser can't handle unicode?

Nah, I'm using the WYSIWYG editor. It butchers Unicode. But as I said 221A is the Unicode for the square root (I saw that before posting). The question still remains, does anyone know the Unicode or Alt+Number combination for a check mark?

When I paste oog's checkmark into a terminal it's turned into \x{221A}

Hm, I guess it is the square root thing.

Try 2713, 2714, 10102, and 237b

None of those worked. If I must, I will use the square root, but I would have assumed that there was a check mark in the character map.

Hmm, try 10003 and 10004

Nope, double quotation, and paragraph symbol respectively.

Regardless of this unicode discussion, there is no ASCII check mark.

Okay, that's what I was looking for. Hopefully the square root symbol looks enough like a check mark.

I assume you're not using word, or other wysiwyg word processor? You'd just use windings in that case.

I am using word. Which winding character is the check mark?

alt-0252 is a check mark in wingdings, and P is a checkmark in wingdings 2
