anyone know how to use ordinary keyboards to produce special symbols?

[b]I've found a few (by trial & error, on the little number's square), but if there's any website that shows all the possibilities, I'd really like to bookmark it! I'm especially interested in the number which allows one to "line through" anything one has typed, in order to express visually that there was an error made, & the other one I'd love to have is the number which produces a Christian cross. Whatever else I get would be gravy, although the ability to make a tilde over an N would be nice to have when I use Spanish, or umlauts when I use German! So, does anyone know? Please share!

Do you mean special Alt Characters? like: † = Alt(Hold) then press 0134 on the numpad keys ñ = Alt 164 Ñ = Alt 165 Just search Special ALT characters on the net....

[b]YES! Exactly that! So, is there such a website I could access to find out other symbols? THANK you for giving me the ones I most want (except for the line-through code, which I used to know, but haven't had for ages, so I've forgotten it)! You're a jewel! Thank you!!

[b]THANK YOU!!!!!!! This is EXACTLY what I was trying to find! I did try to use the little cross, but both times I did that, MyBot ate my post! At least I can now use them in e-mail again! Maggiepie "WHERE'S THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE?"[/b]
