the character map that comes with windows only gives keystrokes in unicode
and not ansi (i.e. alt+####) what gives. How can I use those codes to insert
special characters. Also, why cant I copy an paste all of the characters
from the character map. I tried several selections from the windings set and
a different character appears.
