Yeah, weighs about 380 lbs, snores horribly and he has the same name, only I really think he is a nice troll not an Ogre. Walk in and say, "Hi Shrek!" and get a "Hi!" back in stereo.

An easy way to do this, is to copy and paste these characters from someplace on the internet. That is what I do, when I want to be correct about my grammar and spelling for a reason, rather than my usual quick and careless way of typing.

Whether or not Alt or AltGr + a letter works, depends (at least in Windog) on which keyboard layout you have chosen. I used to use Brazilian Portuguese, because I could put all kinds of neat stuff quickly. E.g., e' gave me י (e + two ' gave me e'). But, they changed it.

Windog has a utility called "Character Map". It has all the special characters.

Screenshots of Character Map Icon and of Character Map in use, below. Once a character is highlighted, there is info about that character in the bottom line, e.g., how to make the character with keystrokes. I have Character Map pinned to my task bar because I write stuff in English, French, Danish, & Swedish. I only remember the key strokes for the letters I use a lot (זרו, יט), can't remember any of the upper case letters.
Windows has something called "charmap" that is virtually identical to that. Start -> Run -> charmap

I think "charmap" is just an abbreviation for Character Map.

Certainly it is. It's charmap.exe, the Windows accessory/utility that displays various character maps and allows you to copy and paste. I think it's been there since at least Windows 98, maybe earlier.

I have seen it as early as Windows 3.0. I didn't notice if it was in 2.7 as I only used that waste once.

Yeah, I wouldn't argue Windows 3.1 at least, but I couldn't really remember. I ran Windows 3.0 only a short time, just playing with it. Back in those days DOS was king. I used Windows 3.1 mainly because of a few games they had, like WinMine. I did all my important stuff from DOS programs. That was before the Internet became popularized.

Is that humour that I don't understand or did you not realize I meant Windows when I wrote Windog?

I guess it's me. I thought Windog was some kind of aftermarket thing you downloaded, perhaps shareware or freeware. I've never encountered the term "Windog" before. The term I'm familiar with is Windoze.
