"alt" codes.
 
In case anyone is interested, An ALT code is a keyboard code.

here's a short 'how-to':

press 'alt' button, then at the same time, press one of the numbers at the SIDE of the keyboard. Then let go at the same time.

Combinations are possible too. just press several numbers at the same time.

Ex:

alt + 1 = ☺

2= ☻

756=

there! :D

@mods: I hope this will stay up. It's a how-to for people who are interested.

On Mac, hold the alt key and hit any key on your keyboard to produce a special character.
Examples:
alt + m =
a =
r =
4 =
' =

Is not working for me:frustrated:
When I press alt + any key I only receive a beep

Not that it's a big deal, but if you open your Character Map program you can view the alt codes for pretty much all characters that have them (or you could just press copy character to Clipboard)

:heh: my mistake. I just looked at my keyboard and alt requires the function key. What I meant to say is OPTION + any key.

EDIT: nevermind. pressing fn only activates the built-in NumPad on a MacBook/Pro

I think its great when people "rediscover" the Olde Ways. :)
Computers *used* to come with paper manuals that included an ALT code chart. Google around and you can still find lists for them but most people just cheat and use the character insertion tools word processors offer.

Sucks to have a laptop. I don't have the numpad :D I used to put alt codes in my name back when Starcraft was popular

I just use character map now.

You can use a text expander.
Just set some codewords for the special characters you need.

e.g.

Set --> when typed to be replaced by , simple as that
Text expander's usually, as far as I know, hack your clipboard, so if a program supports copy/paste the text-expander will work in it.

It is codepage dependend. Depending on your countries key map, glyph map or on the codetable for applications that do not support unicode.

For me only the right Alt (Alt Gr) works as described... Alt + <number> is printing the character at the position <number> of the code page ordered glyph map of the currently selected font.
