Special Characters

I don’t know about you, but I have a terrible time remembering keyboard shortcuts to make “Special Characters”.

There are only two I can usually remember, just because I use them so much:

Holding down the [ALT] key, and then typing the number 0169, when you release the [ALT] key, results in a Copyright symbol… like this ===>  ©

Holding down the [ALT] key, and then typing the number 0149, results in a heavy black dot symbol… like this ===>  •

Because I can never find a “good” reference chart for the ALT Special Character Codes, I thought I would post it on my Blog, so I always know where it is.

(Hopefully you will find it useful, as well)
