    I looked all through the special characters palette and I couldn't find it. I'm typing some help documents for my Mom who's new to Mac. I found the command for the ⌘ symbol, but I'd much prefer to use the apple character.

    (yes I know that the apple character has been replaced, but my Mom is not using a new Mac and I feel that the apple symbol is much easier to understand, remember and talk about.)

    BTW, Option + Shift + k for :apple: will only show up on Macs. When I read MR using my Linux box, I a "whisker" character in place of the :apple:. ;)

    Or, you could turn on the Keyboard Viewer in the Keyboard and Mouse preference pane...

    Now that symbol IS in the character palette > technical symbols ⌘. Odd that the apple symbol isn't in an Apple MacOS character set.

    I see it's in PopChar http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/14804 but only with a paid version.
