    It's decimal, unless it begins &#x, in which case it's hex. The numbers
    refer to characters in the Unicode character set. See www.unicode.org,
    and the list of scripts at http://www.unicode.org/charts/.

    Yes.

    Who knows? Who are they? (Hint: Write a descriptive Subject line, and then
    start writing the message as if you didn't. It's bad style to imply the
    heading in the copy text.)

    > Does hex code include Asian script?


    Sense the question does not make.

    It seems that you need to read a primer on HTML, but just in case the
    primer(s) you read happened all have a section on character references torn
    away, check

    Anyone with half a brain 'knows'.

    Jukka's almost right about this. It isn't just a matter of bad style:
    it's a matter of whether the reader knows what he's talking about. At
    least some, if not most, readers have already lost a grip of the subject
    line by the time they start reading the message. It's in the writer's
    own interest to begin the message at the beginning.

    Have you got a point, or even half a point? In HTML, a notation beginning
    with &# may or may not contain a number in hexadecimal notation.
