Insert Squared Symbol?

This is gonna sound like a total noob question, but I was in Mail a few days ago, and I wanted to write some measurements to a friend.. so I was looking to write for ex:

100m (ie, 100 square metres).. but i couldn't figure out how to get the squared bit (ie, the small raised "2")..

i went into special characters, but couldn't really see anything..

in outlook 2003, i have just gone into insert symbol and picked the symbol with ease (and just pasted it in the above example)..

any help most appreciated..

thanks

They are there (in the Character Palette) under Numbers and Number symbols (or whatever it was called):

...but I was a bit disappointed about the lack of a superscript option somewhere under Format...

To square it

The characters menu that is activated with "ctrl+cmd+space" allows access to a "superscript 2" ().

if the "Digits All" category isn't in the left-hand column, click the gear icon, then select that adding it to the list.

...Then you can add the "superscript 2", in "Digits All", to Favorites, so you can access it a little more quickly.

Just double click it to place into your text.
