About the Codes

The codes are organized by letter types, except for diacritics which are on the
diacritics entity code page. For details on how to implement these codes,
see the Using the IPA Unicode Entity Code instructions.

Numeric codes are given in decimal form then hexadecimal form. For instance, the code upside-down
A (ɐ) is both &‌#592; and &‌#x0250; in hexadecimal form.
