    I really hope someone can help me out with this. Ok so i got the steel tongs font and it says to get some of the special charters in it yo have to do some thing like hold ALT+*** and hen enter certain numbers this s similar to holding alt + k and getting ˚ but what number does alt+k represent?? heres an example of what it says:


    The following characters need to be accessed by holding down the ALT key
    and then typing the character code no. using the numeric keypad

    For easy Mac OSX usage in Photoshop etc, I recomend PopCharX (10.1.2 or later)
    http://www.ergonis.com/products/popcharx/index.html

    EG:
    Hold the ALT key and type 0131, let the ALT key go and the ƒ will appear normally.
    With this font selected, MECHANICAL DESIGN will appear instead.

    these are the ones i really want:


    Useful logo's

    ALT+0149 DVD LOGO
    ALT+0150 DOLBY LOGO
    ALT+0151 DOLBY DIGITAL
    ALT+0152 CLOSED CAPTION LOGO
    ALT+0173 CLOSED CAPTION LOGO & TEXT
    ALT+0192 THX LOGO
    ALT+0193 DTS DIGITAL SURROUND
    ALT+0194 DTS LOGO
    ALT+0195 PAL
    ALT+0196 NTSC

    The Alt+number codes are a Windows-specific way of inputting text. To convert these to Mac, you have to know what the regular character at that code point is.
    149 is a bullet, option-8.
    150 is an en dash, option-hyphen.
    151 is an em dash, option-shift-hyphen.
    152 is a tilde, option-n then space.
    173 is a soft hyphen, not sure how you input that.
    192 is À, option-backtick then shift-A.
    193 is Á, option-e then shift-A.
    194 is Â, option-i then shift-A.
    195 is Ã, option-n then shift-A.
    196 is Ä, option-u then shift-A.

    An alternative is to use the Unicode Hex Input keyboard, which requires you to convert the number to 4-digit hex and then type it in (using the 10-key for digits) with option held down.
    173=00AD, 192=00C0, 193=00C1, 194=00C2, 195=00C3, 196=00C4. Numbers between 128 and 159 don't follow that rule: 149=2022, 150=2013, 151=2014, 152=02DC.
