♥ It works for me if I use the numbers on the right of the keyboard. It doesn't work if i use the numbers going across the keyboard above the letters♥ ♪ :)

Go to Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Character Map on any Windows based system for the codes for thousands of characters, symbols, signs, foreign language letters and accents, designs, all kinds of things. It's been there since at least back to Win 95, maybe before.

Some rely on using a different font so they may not work here where we have no choice. Try them in Word or whatever you have as a document program on your computer if they don't work here.

Honestly, you can sit and play around and find all kinds of things to do with the keys.
Remember to push Alt and hold while pressing the numbers.

171-
172-
123-{
125-}
13 -♪
3 -♥

Hope you enjoy these, too. Isn't it nice to learn something new every day. That is what I learn on this board everyday.

Perhaps it only works with later programmes, I have Windows XP on my notebook.
You have to use the number pad. On a notebook/laptop you do that this way: http://www.northlite.net/ps/numpad.htm
