Default Weird text

I noticed that some people posted weird text. For example, Mr.Onion typed the symbol for infinity in one of his posts, and a user (3smile^2) has a superscript "2" in his name. How do you do that?

They might be copy pasting it, they downloaded a program to type that or used alt coed.

if you're wondering alt code is when you hold the alt key and a series of number like Alt+13=♪

Weird. Ctrl + Alt + 2 doesn't do a thing with me.

Or you can use Character Map. Start > Programs > Accessories, and it's in System Files. Takes some searching, though.

There are many shortcuts for symbols. You can make them with Alt and Num Code or with the Keyboard. that is Alt Gr (Maybe another name in your language. It's right of Space)

Here are some other symbolys with Alt:
† = hold "alt", pressing 0134 on the Num Pad
‡ = hold "alt", pressing 0135 on the Num Pad
= hold "alt", pressing 124 on the Num Pad

I believe that most English keyboards don't have an Alt Gr key -o_-o Pressing Alt Gr has essentially the same effect as holding Ctrl + Alt and is used to type symbols that appear in the lower right corner of some keys (i.e. "[" on a QWERTZ keyboard is in the lower right corner of the "8" key, and as thus requires you to hold down Alt Gr and press "8" to type it). English language keyboards normally don't have any important symbols that can only be entered that way (since they don't have umlauts and therefore more room for symbols and whatnot), and so, they normally don't have an Alt Gr key, instead requiring the user to press Ctrl + Alt for stuff that can be done using Alt Gr on a different keyboard :D (oh, and on a QWERTZ keyboard (on mine at least), is in the lower right corner of the "2" key and can thus be entered by holding Alt Gr (or Ctrl + Alt) and pressing "2" :D)

Wow, I thought Alt Gr was the same as normal Alt. Now I can use the ¦ sign! Hooray! Actually, € too, though I use that about as often.

I have found an ASCII-index in the Internet. It's German, but you can also read the stuff without being a German.

For all of the random symbols, like accented vowels and stuff, you just need to make sure that Num Lock is on, then use the pad on the right.
