Insert Special Characters with Alt-Codes

If keyboards held all the keys we'd ever need, they'd be enormous. So they're a managable size, but what do you do when you need to type a character that's nowhere in sight? Use the Alt key and special codes. While holding down the Alt key on your keyboard, type the code for whatever character you need on your number pad on the right side of the keyboard (not the numbers across the top), and the character you need will appear. (Bookmark this post so you can come back to the list whenever you need it!) Click on the graphic to zoom in and find the code you need.
