  • If you are using windows, using your number pad only.. press and hold ALT 0176
    In the future, you can look at the windows character map, or google "windows alt key codes" there are tons of other neat things you can type! But, again, you have to use the number pad. ALT codes will not work otherwise.

  • Well, Linda, looks like it was a pretty useful question after all. Hannafoy, thanks for clearing that up for me about the numbers keypad. No wonder I could never get it to work before.
