How do you code the post to get the symbol to display?

It would be nice if the "ALT" + 0xxx would work, but I can't find the correct number.
If I could get the correct number for 0xxx do I then need to add extra coding to select and deselect the alternative font?

I have no idea

I simply open charmap on Windows XP and copy-paste...

With advice of tvi, select the character and change font type.

Thanks popilin, even I can understand that. ♫ ♥

There's some odd choices of characters there. What use are half a dozen random fractions like ⅝? Maybe somebody did a poll and decided they were the 6 most popular fractions on the interweb.

More likely they assigned codes for every conceivably useful character they could think of, then it came down to: "OK guys, there's still 57 codes with no symbols assigned. Think of something, anything. We need to get this list finished, dammit!".

Hey, Cal's alt codes work too!

(alt+0188) works on this Forum
as do most of the other alt+0xxx
But the alt+xxx do not work for me on this Forum
alt+227 gives instead of Pi.
Similarly for the other alt+xxx

So I ask again, since I can't find the alt+0xxx for pi.
What is the code for Pi that works on this Forum?
and what font needs to be coded to display correctly?

I don't have a computer or keyboard with Numlock so I don't think I can test this properly, but this did work in Wordpad (where you just press ALT-X after typing a hex code): 3A0 / 3C0.

So.. on your keyboard try "Alt +03A0" and "Alt +03C0".

Reference: Unicode Character 'GREEK CAPITAL LETTER PI' (U+03A0)

As for the font... yes looks like Tahoma renders them both in the "upper case" version..

This is Times New Roman: π
