In Portuguese, Ã/ã represents a nasal near-open central vowel, [ɐ̃] (its exact height varies from near-open to mid according to dialect). It appears on its own and as part of the diphthongs ãe [ɐ̃j̃] and ão [ɐ̃w̃].
It is often produced by text encoding errors.
All Unicode values start with 0, so the Unicode value for ã is actually 0227, not 227.
