I don't know why I can't get it to work in iTunes, but open up the Character Palette in TextEdit through the Edit menu and select your star and maybe copy/paste it into the iTunes playlist name.

Or alternatively, just (with it still open) go to iTunes, select the Playlist you want to rename and press insert once you've selected the star you want. :)

You can get the Character Pallette through finder and most apps. Go to finder and find "Special Characters" (under Edit if I can remember) and it will show you the differet character along with key combination/unicode number. NOt sure whether it will work in iTunes however.

I'm not having any luck in iTunes opening it but it's really easy to open it in Finder/TextEdit or pretty much any other app and keeping it open as you select iTunes as the foremost app to rename the playlist. I actually just did that, I made a star playlist, yay!
