Adding Special Characters on a Macintosh
Fonts often contain many characters that don't appear on the Macintosh keyboard. These characters
include accented characters, math symbols, and special punctuation symbols. One way to access these
characters is through the Key Caps desk accessory. Another method is through key stroke commands.
Use the following methods to insert special characters in standard desktop applications (e.g. Word,
Eudora...).
*Not all fonts contain all special characters. Additional characters can be found in the "Symbol" font
which consists entirely of special characters. The Euro currency symbol "€" is supported by Mac OS 8.5
and later only.

Special Characters Using "Key Caps"
The Key Caps accessory is generally installed with system software and is usually located under the Apple menu.
Key Caps can be used to determine which special characters are contained within a font. Key Caps is also useful
when key strokes commands are unknown or forgotten.
When you open Key Caps, it displays a representation of your keyboard. The characters it shows are those
produced when you press the associated keys. The keys that produce the accent marks `, Вґ, ВЁ, ^, and ~ are shown
with a distinctive border. Also, font styles are displayed on the keyboard representation and can be changed via the
"Fonts" menu. Characters generated in the Key Caps display can be cut and pasted into working documents.
