You should use unicode character set,
Every unicode prefix by \u

For example:

\u00bd  is half sign
\u001c  is pi.

All the code can find in
http://www.pccl.demon.co.uk/java/unicode.html

To print unicode char in file,

java.io.FileWriter fw = new java.io.FileWriter("filename");
fw.write("\u00a2");
fw.close();
