[scribus] Problem with alternate stylistics

Oh, of course, that's where!
While not knowing how to do this, I have been trying to find a way to help with this question (and to learn how myself) but to no avail.
I thought that perhaps I would require a special character/glyph font after trying various methods to insert extended characters.

Great news to learn that there is a simple method, but it is still a well hidden feature within the program.

How do you insert them ?

It seems copy'n'pasting is NOT the way to do.

Try with the dedicated tool :
   double click a text frame so as to enter edit mode
   menu : Insert > Character... (or "Glyph..." ?)
   click the table looking button
   choose the font
   double click the glyph
   click Insert button
