Unicode

To enter the Unicode symbol in Windows or Linux just type Alt+"dec. number", just like you do with Ascii code.

Many symbols are supported by public domain fonts like DejaVu (to be downloaded here: http://dejavu-fonts.org/wiki/Download) or Symbola, (to be downloaded here: http://www.fonts2u.com/symbola.font). With one of the big Linux distributions you should be able to install these fonts easily via the package manager, searching for instance for "Symbola" or "DejaVu". If you are using Windows you can also use the Microsoft font Segoe UI Symbol.

There are of course many alternatives to the fonts that I am mentioning here, but these are the fonts that I tested myself and that I liked best.

Just select the font that you want to use and enter Alt+.... (the decimal value indicated in the list below).

In the case that your preferred font does not contain the symbol that you want to display, have a look at www.fileformat.info (see exact link on the bottom of this page) to see which font you need to install onto your system.
