How to type special characters.

Ever wondered how to type special characters on a Windows computer? Here's a link to all the codes. Press and hold down the ALT key, then type the special code. You have to use the keypad on the right side of your keyboard, and the Num Lock needs to be turned on. For example: ALT + 0200 = È. The letter appears after you release the Alt key.

On the other hand, if you're using HTML view in LJ or making Web pages, just type these HTML special characters. For example: ampersand + trade + ; = ™.
