HTML entity for the middle dot

206

I'm looking for the html code for the dot. Not the dot that's at the end of sentences but the dot that's used to separate items horizontally.

Item 1 . Item 2 . Item 3

The traditional dot is centered on the bottom of the line while the dot I'm looking for is centered on the middle.

There's actually seven variants of this:

    char   description          unicode   html       html entity    utf-8

    ·      Middle Dot           U+00B7    ·     ·       C2 B7
    ·      Greek Ano Teleia     U+0387    ·                    CE 87
    •      Bullet               U+2022    •    •         E2 80 A2
    ‧      Hyphenation Point    U+2027    ₁                   E2 80 A7
    ∙      Bullet Operator      U+2219    ∙                   E2 88 99
    ●      Black Circle         U+25CF    ●                   E2 97 8F
    ⬤     Black Large Circle   U+2B24    ⬤                  E2 AC A4

Depending on your viewing application or font, the Bullet Operator may seem very similar to either the Middle Dot or the Bullet.
