FromCharacterCode

 FromCharacterCode[n]gives a string consisting of the character with integer code n. FromCharacterCodegives a string consisting of the sequence of characters with codes . FromCharacterCodegives a list of strings. FromCharacterCodeuses the specified character encoding.
• The integer n must lie between 0 and 65535, as returned by ToCharacterCode.
• For n between 129 and 255, it returns ISO Latin-1 characters.
• For other n it returns characters specified by the standard Mathematica encoding based on Unicode.
• InputForm 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.
