    It's option-3. There used to be a "key caps" application (I could swear it even existed in Mac OS X) to find such things, but now it's gone (at least on my computer). You can use the character palette from International options to find special characters, but I can't get it to tell me the key combo. The only way I could find it was using Insert--special character in MS word.

    Both Character Palette and Keyboard Viewer are available in the keyboard menu, as long as you have it activated.

    Yes, that is odd. When I went into International preferences, I noticed that it seemed to be under the Japanese group.

    Aha! Yes, now I found it! Anyone know of a way to access Keyboard viewer without having the keyboard menu activated?
