is there any reason i can't use these symbols in an extra-secure password?

thanks for the info on this site--very helpful and new to me!

Thats actually not correct.
In print the ß is used.
The only time it is replaced (officially) by SS is when it is used as capial letter as there was no capital form of ß.
Interestingly recetly a capital form was introduced.

The "ß" is/was used on traffic signs with "Einbahnstraße" "one way street".

Do these German alphabet characters only work with Microsoft Word, or also with the OpenOffice program?

In German print you never use the so called "sz",( the one that looks like a "B"); it is only used in handwriting. In print the "sz" is always replaced by double "s" i.e. ss.

Only the äÄ üÜ öÖ and ß are German. The rest are other languages. Helpful though! Danke für da!

No, we do not use the ø/Ø in sweden, such weird symbols only norwgians and danish people'll use ...

Here you have a Polish one:

ę ó ą ś ł ż ź ć ń

The ones you need for German are Ä Ö Ü ä ö ü ß and they're a lot easier to type if you activate the US International keyboard layout, if it isn't the default layout already.

Type umlauts by first typing " and then the letter. Type ß by holding AltGr and typing an s.

On most phones, you can hold the corresponding letter and a small menu with the accented characters will appear.

How do you do these on a Android phone?

Who cares if extra alt-codes are given? All the better if anything. I came here and found exactly what I was looking for, so thanks!

That's a great List ,but in german there are only : Ä Ö Ü ä ö ü and the ß

ğ , ë , ø , ş , ÿ , å , æ and the big/tall letters of them are in other languages ,like turkish,norwegian and swedisch

Sorry for my bad english ,i'm german ,thanks | Danke

They plug in other Germanic language codes here as well, for example, Norwegian/Swedish uses ø/Ø

Richard Norwood 2014-09-25 17:47:02

I'm grateful for these, but I haven't actually seen most of them in print in German, including 134, 0240, 0248, 0254, 152, 143, 0208, 0216, 0222.
Thank you.
