This article was created to assist editors, both new and experienced, in entering special characters in Wikipedia articles. Several basic methods are discussed, beginning with the largely undocumented special-character links provided by the MediaWiki software. No attempt has been made to cover every available method; the objective was to give editors enough information to perform the task without intimidating them with large amounts of unrelated material. The effort was initiated by Art LaPella and was discussed fairly thoroughly in Help talk:Special characters. Several companion changes were made to that article, the most significant being links to this article for editors who simply want to know how to enter special characters.
