well, it's even possible with windoze - you just have to find somewhere else on the web to copy it from!
-ron o.

or know the 'character entity reference'
ñ [ntilde]
® [reg]
♠ [spades]

On a windoze machine you can use extended ASCII according to this chart.

Hold down the ALT key and enter 0nnn where nnn is the number in the DEC column associated with the character you want. Note that the number (including the leading 0) must be entered using the numbers on the keypad, not the numbers in the top row of the keyboard. Example, to get the , enter ALT-0241.

Faldo, that method doesn't seem to work with the expanded character set(s); e.g. the reversed R (&#7449;).

in order to use the character entity reference, insert the appropriate character string (e.g., spades) within '&' and ';'
thus ♠ [that's '& spades ;' without the spaces]

(again, there seems to be no CER for the reversed 'R')

here's a chart

you can directly copy the CER (here's the fraction 1/2: ½; or you can see the decimal code and use Faldo's method: (using decimal 189)

Aha! thank you, I'm yet not used to my new keyboard and forgot there was actually a key named "all option"

Incidentally "Adjust the font size" icons don't seem to work. Anyone know how to use 'em

Thanks very much tsuwm. After 8 years I can now make the € sign (and more amusing things). The euro sign wasn't on any keyboard I had so far. Going legal now.
