The ZX Character Set

[Thunor: Key to symbols used:

  • Characters within square brackets are inverse e.g. [=].
  • Unused characters are presented by two tildes e.g. ~~.

If there are missing characters then it means that your browser isn't displaying the graphics (there are 21 images).

Key end.]
