Since we don't have an Insert-Symbol button to use when we're writing a blog or comment directly in ActiveRain, it's handy to use the ALT+ symbols. Here's a reference for the ones you can't remember. Using them is very simple (might not work on all laptops, but should work on most machines) - hold down the ALT key with one hand while typing the digits with the other hand. Here are some common ones:
é Alt + 0233 as in Renée
© Alt + 0169 Copyright
® Alt + 0174 Registered, as in REALTOR®
™ Alt + 0153 Trademark
½ Alt + 0189 Half
± Alt + 0177 Plus or minus
Makes it much easier to use this.
p.s. if it doesn't work on your computer, I'm not the techie who can help.
