I have only Windows XP running Word 2002 SP3 and this
ALT-0254 works IF you type all four numbers, i.e.
0254. Also if you choose Insert/Symbol and then choose
on the right drop-down box the set called "Latin-1"
you will see these two characters included. The
advantage here is that the system remembers the
symbols you used last and they can be easily invoked
again and again.
Hope this helps.....
