I was trying to accurately mimic a symbol (in text) that had been entered as
part of an equation yesterday. The insert symbol version of pi (p )was not
a very good match, so I surmised that the Alt-{4 digit number} version of
the symbol might be. The only sequence I currently use frequently enough to
remember is Alt-0181. (It's a kind-of italicized version of the m symbol.)
I know for FrameMaker, MicroType has nicely documented all of the symbols
under the sun. But for Word (and I guess for anything else that accepts
ANSI keystrokes), can anyone direct me to a list of which symbol maps to
each key sequence? There used to be one in the old PageMaker manuals, now I
bet it's up on the web somewhere.
