Not really the solution I need. What I'm looking for is basically the same usability you would get from any
text editor, where a user can be typing/writing out something then whenever they need a special character, just hit ALT+#### and it
will insert the correct symbol. Asking users to somehow throw in HTML text won't work b/c most of our user base doesn't know HTML.
Have you confirmed if the issue is a character encoding issue, or an issue with the short cut keys?
If the character can be displayed, you can always listen for the key presses and insert the character when a matching combo is entered.
Its not an encoding issue, because any of these symbols can be cut and pasted in from word and they all display perfectly fine.
I figured we could do listeners in the worst case scenario but I figured I'd hit the forums first, because there are certain ranges that do work w/ the ALT codes, such as Spanish characters. In my mind I guess I thought if some ALT codes work, maybe there's a way to make others work as well. So I thought I'd see if someone out there knew how to work some of that magic. I know there are a bunch of knowledgeable people on these forums, as well as Adobe Employees that frequent so I was hoping for some good luck I suppose
