The 4 number codes all seem to work (for me on my win7 PC), but I can't find a complete listing of the 4number codes.
I can't get any of the 3 number codes to work. Is my PC set up incorrectly?
Please see my post: Greek letters

1) Go to wordpad (windows key + run, type "wordpad", press enter)
2) Type "3c0"
3) Press and hold the ALT key and while holding it down, press X

Alternatively, if you have a "full" keyboard with a number pad, you can probably "ALT + 03c0" but I can't test that for you.

Here is a listing of unicode characters, which appear to work (no guarantees - surprising they work actually because vBulletin 3 doesn't support unicode natively, and the charset is set to latin, but they seem to work fine?):

Unicode Characters in the Greek and Coptic Block

Look for the "How to type in windows" line in any character you are looking for.

It works in Wordpad (W7) but it won't copy and paste as here,
π

I find the same for some of the characters in the Windows character set. They won't copy and paste into the forum while odd ones just paste as totally different.

Copy & paste was the problem I had earlier. So I used Character Map and font commands to type post #23. I think if you hit the quote button in that post you can see the code. For π I changed the font size to make it comparable the the other characters.

I tend to use "3" instead of π. Works flawlessly and stays within tolerances of the parts used along with π

π I can do it now.

An idea... how about compiling a notepad document with all the symbols we use. It can be a lot quicker just opening such a sheet when needed and copy and pasting the code into the forum.

I hope your not going to say that you work in the aerospace industry

Uh, you're right, these mil-aerospace engineers... They use π≈4 for headroom in reliability

Try the wordpad route. The forum should definitely have a little panel to insert these characters!

But the 4number code works directly.
try alt+
0128 €
0136 ˆ
0137 ‰
0176
0177
0181
0188
0189
0190
0247
and dozens of others.
I keep a look up table on a sticky by my screen
