If you're using Windows XP go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Character Map and pick out some characters. Use the select and copy buttons on the Character Map program to choose and copy the characters you want.

Thanks a lot, But how can I make a name with a 'bar', looks like erasing a name: ---gostraight---, for instance ?

Oh, that's not something you do when you create your username. The strikeout through someone's username indicates they are no longer a member, either because they were banned or they asked to terminate their membership.

So you probably DO NOT want the bar.
