O-O-ooops - old thread but for Mac users click on the character viewer for key combinations, if it's not accessible in the menu bar top screen right, go to Keyboard preferences and activate it there. Dey's all in der.

Eerm I'm mobile right now on an old MacBook - seems to work - just have to find the character in the "character viewer" - (set it to "all characters") then enter from the viewer window - The "keyboard viewer" doesn't show up on this system for some reason but it does on my iMac will have to wait til I'm back at the roost. The keyboard viewer will be limited. The character viewer also gives the ASCII code. It's 2 a.m. and I'm a bit foggy, if this is no help I'll get back tomorrow. G'night.
☛ Here we are again - Last night I was using OS Snow Leopard - Character Viewer works differently in OS Mavericks - find the symbol - activate it - it then appears in the Font Variation window - double click it - it will then appear in the Forum Text Editor window at place of cursor ➔ - interesting to note Mavericks doesn't give the ASCII code, at least I don't know how if it does. Hope to have helped. Let me know if it didn't. gruss - spike
