    I don't know how many of you are interested, but here are some ASCII codes you can use on a PC keyboard to create special symbols.

    You must first turn on Numloc, hold down the Alt key, and use the number pad on the right side of the keyboard. Give it a try.

    Turn on Numloc and use number pad



    ⅓ = alt 8531

    ¼ = alt 0188

    ½ = alt 0189

    ¾ = alt 0190

    ± = alt 0177 (plus or minus)

    ÷ = alt 0247 (divided by)

    ° = alt 0176 (degrees)

    » = alt 0187

    « = alt 174

    » = alt 175

    ¢ = alt 155 (cents)

    ¿ = alt 0191

    ñ = alt 0241

    ♥ = alt 3 hearts

    ♦ = alt 4 diamonds

    ♣ = alt 5 clubs

    ♠ = alt 6 spades

    ♪ = alt 13

    ♫ = alt 14

    → = alt 26

    ← = alt 27

    ↨ = Alt 23

    ↑ = alt 24

    ↓ = alt 25

    π = alt 227 (Pi)

    Ω - alt 234 Omega


    ▬ = Alt 22

    ◄► = Alt17 Alt 16

    .☼ =Alt 15

    ♂ = Alt 11

    ♀ =Alt 12

    Thanks. Good info to have.
    Is there a way to get these results if you don't have the numeric pad on the right?

    I don't have them all. I just thought these were some of the more commonly used. Feel free to post them. :)

    Are the numbers along the top of the keyboard different from the numbers on the right?

    I just know the ASCII codes won't work with the numbers across the top. I think. Let me try one.

    Nope.....nothin'

    With the number pad: ¢ ♥ ♦ ♣ ♠

    If you're on a Mac, just hit Cmd+Ctrl+SpaceBar and get a nice emoji/symbol input window popup.
