History

Proto-Semitic T Phoenician T Etruscan T Greek Tau

Taw was the last letter of the Western Semitic and Hebrew alphabets, and probably represented a cross. The sound value of Semitic Taw, Greek alphabet Tαυ (Tau), Old Italic and Latin T has remained fairly constant, representing IPA: [/t/] in each of these; and it has also kept its original basic shape in all of these alphabets.

The EBCDIC code for capital T is 227 and for lowercase t is 163.

The numeric character references in HTML and XML are "T" and "t" for upper and lower case respectively.
