Hmm, I remember that it was (is?) possible in MS Word to type 
ALT-<Unicode> to get any special char inserted. I think typing the 
ALT-key is a lot faster than pressing F12, especially if you have a lot 
of special characters to insert (I often used that when I had to type 
German stuff on an American keyboard). I don't know if that is a 
speciality of MS Word or a feature of Windows (or the edit-components).
Does that collide with other shortcuts or would it be possible to 
support it?
