Many thanks - very useful information and much quicker than going through insert symbol route.

  Diodorus Siculus 14:32 29 Nov 2004

Carafaraday - yes, I agree that it is quicker; it just takes a little time to remember the various combinations. I have a little MS word chart that has all combinations listed and that is on a notice board for easy reference.

Thanks for coming back, problem solved now but out of curiosity, this is my system tools pic, sorry..thought I could copy/paste or attach.

How do you do those "click here" links ??

  Diodorus Siculus 14:13 30 Nov 2004

Or copy the address from the address bar (or anywhere else for that matter) and paste. As long as it begins with either www or http:// it will become a blue click here.
