Shift Option K will give you the Apple symbol in documents.

If you want them online, you need to use the Unicode/HTML references for them. There's a very long thread somewhere about how to get the symbols working since if you use Preview they don't always work and they won't always work in IE etc either

OK, this helped me find the cloverleaf symbol. I went to your link, saw that the cloverleaf symbol was used in the text, and tried to drag and drop it into my Character Palette. The Palette immediately went to the character, which is in Technical Symbols.

All I need to learn now is how to make it one of my Favorites -- is it merely by usage, anybody know?

Now there's a thing -- I tried dragging and dropping the Apple symbol into the Character Palette and again it immediately went to the symbol's location, which is where no-one would ever find it:

Unicode -- Private Use Area -- Private Use Characters -- F8F0.

Click on the Font Variation triangle at the bottom and it shows all the available versions, including the outline one where it's available -- in the Lucida Grande font for example. Sadly this application (Safari, presumably) does not support it so I can't reproduce it here.

OK, found it. There's one of those drop-down cog thingies at the bottom of the screen.

Sorry if I'm the last Mac user to discover these things!
