    Does anyone know what the ascii code is for a solid dot (not a period, a solid dot)? I can't seem to find it anywhere :(

    Use Character Map...

    When you select a character it will show the code in the status bar. On the left it shows the hexidecimal to use it in unicode systems and on the right it shows the keystroke combination to use it. That Keystroke combination is what you want. Just take the 3 digits (drop the number) and place them after the hash sign. You can restrict the character set in Character Map to the basic ASCII characters by clicking "Advanced View" and setting the character set to Windows: Western.

    I always thought that character maps were program specific. If we're working with IPB/vB templates how would we find them? Can you copy/paste them into code? Also, we're on a Mac, so there is no status bar to see keystrokes as far as we know :maggie:

    What I am referring to is an applet utility included with Windows called Character Map. It shows you every character in a selected font file. Fonts, at least the Truetype and Postscript varieties, are built in a specific way with the characters in a specific order regardless of the OS or application using them. The font specifications require that ASCII characters are the first 256 characters in the file to ensure that older applications will work with them even if they don't support Unicode.

    If Apple doesn't include such a font utility, then I am sure there are third party individuals creating such software. It is very useful if I want to use alternative or image based fonts (i.e. Wingdings) for a project.
