HTML Special Characters

Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer have some differences with the characters they show.  On this particular page, I have shown ones that seem to be mostly the same between the two.

Your input wanted.

Do you see any symbols that could/should be re-categorized?

Do you know of certain ranges of numbers that could be categorized and mentioned here?

My main categories:
Other languages (see them in the webpages below):

Anyone want to help me categorize for other languages more?

The following listed pages contain all the Special Characters in order.  They are showed in three different fonts: Times New Roman, Arial, Courier New, and Comic Sans MS.

Format of display on this webpage
Example:
(1)   (2) &ge (3) &#8805 (4) {greater-than or equal to}
  1. Actual character (larger, and magenta)
  2. Alpha HTML character code (in green)
  3. Number HTML character code (in green)
  4. Description in {curly brackets}
   2 & 4 may be missing, but 1 & 3 will always be there.
To use the character codes in HTML,
remember to put the ampersand (&), before, and the semicolon (;), after.
Only the numbered codes require a number sign (#), before the code number.
Many of the code numbers can be used in regular use while typing.
Hold down the "Alt" key while you type the four digit code number.
If the code number is not four digits long, then add preceeding zeros to make the number four digits long.
For example: to get the Euro symbol in HTML, you use € - but while typing, you type Alt-0128.
