The way that you insert the special characters

Dear All.

What was the way that you always used to insert the special characters into your post ?

And how does it be, if someone send you some code that can make this forum put them in to the post on one click ?

I usually write it out in a word doc and use the character map there and paste it or do a quick search for the word in a online dictionary. although mostly I don't bother as the lack of the marks don't usually hinder understanding which term is being used.

I use a customised keyboard for Windows that I made using Microsoft's Keyboard Layout Creator.

Full List of Shortcuts

If you use Opera for browsing the forums you can, instead, define shortcuts of your own to insert them, e.g.

a ctrl = Insert, "ā"
m ctrl = Insert, "ṃ"

etc. I prefer the first method as it works in Notepad and most other Windows Programs.
