Silly-ass question.

Pennsylvania State University tells me &‌amp;#988; should get a capital digamma, &‌amp;#990; capital qoppa (or koppa, I suppose), and &‌amp;#992; capital sampi. I need these for in-story math reasons. Now, in the previous instances of the entities I escaped the ampersand; in the next instances, I shall not: &‌#988; &‌#990; &‌#992;

Please observe how I'm not getting the pretty symbols. But ē gives me the e-with-macron ē no trouble, and ✓ you see is the checkmark that ✓ is meant for! And if I copy-paste the symbols I want directly from PSU's page, like Ϝ Ϟ Ϡ, I have no trouble—but I like the HTML entities for reasons and I am confused.

What is the problem here? :(

*previews* wait why is the escaping the ampersand not working either? o_O

ETA for DW support benefit: typing these out so it better be the right ampersand: Ϝ should result in Ϝ and screenshotting: and saving and then viewing and then screenshotting... Editing again but this time I am copy-pasting from above: &‌amp;#990; &‌#990; and screenshotting: and saving and viewing and screenshotting...
