] gives a string consisting of the character with integer code n.
] gives a string consisting of the sequence of characters with codes .
FromCharacterCode[ ... ,
"] generates a string using the specified character encoding.
The integer n must lie between 0 and 65535, as returned by ToCharacterCode.
For n between 0 and 127, ToCharacterCode returns ASCII characters.
For n between 129 and 255, it turns ISO Latin-1 characters.
For other n it returns characters specified by the standard Mathematica encoding based on Unicode.
]] gives the full name assigned to a special character with character code n.
Whether a particular character generated by FromCharacterCode can be rendered on your output device will depend on what fonts and drivers you are using.
Encodings supported in FromCharacterCode[ ... ,
"] are listed in the notes for $CharacterEncoding.
See the Mathematica book: Section 2.7.7.
