Characters I would like to find on the keyboard

The wonderful world of Unicode provides us with a lot of characters with which we can do good typography even in limited and clumsy environments, fi. social media editors. But it is a pain to look them up in character tables if we do not want to learn the code points by heart. Therefore I made a table with a selection of the most important for an author writing in German and English. Remark that I employ a German keyboard layout, so I do not need the “umlauts” (vowel mutation) äÄöÖüÜ and the ß.

The spaces are wrapped in <pre> tags, otherwise HTML renderers would omit them.
