    but I just can't remember...:mad:
    Windows has a character map available for any font so that if you want to insert a special character, you just bring up the character map, double-click the one you want and voila! Please nudge my old memory and tell me how it's done in OSX Leopard...
    Thanks,
    Rich :cool:

    Click on the flag on the menu bar and select "Show Character Palette"

    If it's not there, System Preferences > International > Input Menu > Show icon on menu bar

    Keyboard shortcut is cmd+alt+t

    What word processing program are you using?

    In Word select "Insert" on the menu then select "symbol"

    In Pages select "Edit" on the menu then select "special characters"

    Or what Ryan says above works universally!
