I'd assume most of you know about this already; but for those who don't then I'll show you how to get it. In Windows XP, I used to use the character map all the time - to get certain letters or whatever. I never knew OSX had something similar (had never really looked into it in much detail) - I usually got the XP character map up from Parallel's and worked from there. However, I did a search on Google to try and see if OSX had a character map similar to XP's (something browseable) I was happy to find out it did! And it is miles better than XP's too. Click on System Preferences --> International. Then click on the Input Menu tab. Click the boxes shown in the picture below: This will bring up a flag on your menu bar (some won't like that) - and from there you can click on the flag and select Show Character Palette. Just thought I'd share that with you guys - help the newbies out who might be looking for this feature.
