Re: TECH: help, special characters (follow-up)

FWIW, I use a nifty little utility program called "Unicode Input" that
lets me quickly enter an arbitrary Unicode character into any
document, given its scalar value.  Alt + numeric keypad Enter brings
up a little dialog box, you type in the code point (it remembers the
last one for easy repetition) and hit Return.

Obviously not the way to go for frequently-used characters, but for
occasional use it's quite handy.  One need only note the code point
after first locating the desired character (in Character Map or the
Insert Character... dialog or whatever); thereafter, it's much faster
to use the Unicode Input dialog for subsequent occurrences.
