I can make fancy characters to put in Facebook posts and other places where I’m limited to characters with no formatting options.

This is your basic set of alphanumeric characters: the capital letters A–Z, the lower-case letters a–z, and the digits 0–9. The conversions only work on alphanumeric characters.

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz 0123456789

Most of the double struck letters are mathematical symbols, but they look cool.

With the conversion to small caps letters, only the lower-case letters get converted to small capital letters.

The fake Cyrillic writing is just what it says: fake Cyrillic writing. It doesn’t really mean anything in Russian, Ukrainian, or any other language.

What Is the Difference Between <button> and <input type="button">?

Question

What is the difference between <button> and <input type="button">?

Answer

From “17.5 The BUTTON element” in the HTML 4.01 Specification:

Buttons created with the button element function just like buttons created with the input element, but they offer richer rendering possibilities: the button element may have content. For example, a button element that contains an image functions like and may resemble an input element whose type is set to “image”, but the button element type allows content.
