Another symbol is the cents '' symbol. Simply press down the 'Alt' button with one hand, punch in the numbers 155, release the 'Alt' button and like magic the cent '' symbol will appear.

I hope this helps someone, it is just a little knowledge and timesaver.
How cool is that?!!!

☺ = Alt 1
☻ = Alt 2

Geez... didn't think some of it was working for me before...I was using the "Ctrl" button instead of the "Alt"!

I used to code book manuscripts to get them ready to be paged. I worked on a MAC and knew most of the codes as easily as I could type. I used pages & pages of code for college science & math textbooks (one of the reasons those books are so expensive). Now a few years have gone by, I no longer work in the publishing industry because most of those jobs have gone to India, and I use a PC. Thanks for reminding me where they are on this computer.
