The "%" symbol is...
  • a symbol representation of the word 'percent'.
  • the operator for modulus in the C programming language (and elsewhere).
  • ASCII ID 37 (25 in Hex).
  • typed by holding shift and pressing 5 on a keyboard.
  • hard to link to on E2. This is because it has special meaning within a URL, for representing characters in hexidecimal. Putting brackets around a % will create an invalid link that kicks you back to the homenode: %.
