In regard Scott's message:
He is correct about the usefulness of "Character Map".

However you find the character map (Try: 
Programs->Accessories->Character map)
make a link for it to your desktop. Then, anytime you are composing in any
program you can send it to your toolbar for ready access. [/e.g. /§

For those of you on a Windows machine, there is a very simple way to use all
of the amazing characters available with Open Type and a lesser amount on
True Type fonts: Character Map. It's been a hidden tool in Windows since
version 3 but few seem to know about it. Do a file search for charmap.exe
(c: windows/stystem32) and drag a copy of it to the desktop for easy use.
This little gem will solve 90% of your searches for odd little characters
like macrons and the Euro symbol that you already have on your machine.
