Special characters

So your keybord don't have the characters you are looking for? Follow these four steps to make them:

1. Find the caracter you need below

2. Press the ALT key next to the spacebar on your keyboard and hold it down

3. Enter the decimal code

4. Release the ALT code, and your character will appear

NOTE! When using this utterly out-dated system, there are two important things to remember. First, when you type in the numbers, some keyboards require that you use the "numeric keypad" located to the side, rather than the numbers along the top. Second, on some keyboards, only one of the two Alt keys will work for this.
