Here's an easy one: how do you make a "cent" sign in Netscape email?  I know I could make one in Word and then paste it in, but I want to be able to make it right in Netscape

Try pressing the alt key and while you have it pressed type i the numeric pad:

162

Thst's the ascii code of the cent sign.

Hmmm... try holding the Alt ket down and using 155 on the numeric pad. Don't know why it's different for xabi, but I've used 155 for about ten years...

Yrwelcom... An incomplete version of the original ASCII set is at http://www.wtlink.com/fcc/tutorial/extendchar.htm, and if you have a bood for your printer, the list is frequently in the back. However, Microsoft, in its infinite wisdom, has some good news and some bad news. The good news is that your character map will have a complete list right on your computer (assuming your using Win95 and have it installed) under Start/Accessories/Character Map (a list is at http://www.columbia.mo.us/~sageser/ascii.htm). The bad news is that some of the ASCII codes have been changed, so if you're using Word (for example), xabi's answer of Alt-162 might be correct.

It's almost typical of the way Redmond deals with standards (as in American Standard Code for Information Interchange) -- they sort of adopt them, and change them, so that everyone has to follow their lead... *shaking head*
