Substituting hexadecimal notation for diacritics and special characters in Uniform Resource Identifiers. When recording a URI in subfield ‡u, you may enter most of the spacing characters listed below as either characters or their hexidecimal equivalents. Consult the table below.

Note: Do not confuse the spacing characters listed below with their long-valid non-spacing counterparts. Use of the spacing characters will be limited almost exclusively to URLs.

Entry method Name Character Alternative entry (hex value)






Enter as character or hex value
Spacing circumflex/circumflex accent ^ %5E
Spacing underscore/low line 1   _ %5F
Spacing grave/grave accent ` %60
Spacing tilde/tilde ~ %7E
Enter as hex value only vertical bar n/a %7C

1   Because the Spacing Underscore may cause problems with MARC output, users may prefer to continue entering it with the hexidecimal value %5F.


‡z Display note   A note that introduces the data in the field.
552     ‡c NAICSCODE ‡d NAICS (North American Industry Classification System) Code for entity. NAICS Codes (and NAICS Descriptions) have been assigned based upon the entity's primary function, regardless of if that is the function that qualified it to be included in this dataset, TGS ‡h North American Industry Classification System (NAICS 2007), US Census Bureau ‡z Codeset source: ‡u http://www.census.gov/epcd/www/naics.html.
