cool- but i will probably never remember which numbers i'm supposed to hit, and will probably not come looking for this post 3 weeks from now when i'm trying to tell someone how cold it is outside :)
wish it could be easy...ya know, the alt part is fine...but then 3 different numbers and symbols? to me it's just easier to write degree or cents then to try to figure out which numbers those are...unless there is some way to make a notation on the computer itself with a list of those...hmmmmm
thanks though, i always figured there was some way

Well the first two are what I got by using the number pad with the ALT key. The rest are three digit combos witht he ALT key. My son's gf spells her name with so i learned something very personally useful.

It is easy. It's on your character map in system tools.

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.
thanks
