    I was always wondering how Chinease speakers write in their language, do they use our a, b, c and so on and apply to their language, can keyboards handle thousands of symbols?

    Hold down the "Alt" key and type 0163 to get £.

    However, PF does not like you to do this :groan:

    Wolram, if you have Windows try:

    start->all programs ->accessories -> system tools ->character map

    The character map has a slew of symbols and foreign punctuation marks.

    I have Windows xp home edition. I'd think every computer would have something similar, even Macs, but no telling where they might have stashed it.

    It is Lisafarian, the language of the lisafs, the lisafs are a little known tribe
    of head hunters from the upper ubongo land, thier language is not well understood as few wester explorers return, sir percy bottomley did return
    from such an exploration but was struck mute by the horrors he saw at the
    hands of the lisafs, it is rumoured that a past time of the lisafs is to tell
    confusing stories while shrinking heads and eating the testicles of thier latest
    victims.

    Man one of my TA's from thermo last semester was Italian. His keyboard was italian. So when we were looking at my teams project code, we were trying to edit and run things....bad idea. We spent half an hour trying to figure out what to press and where to get the amerikan equivalent. :uhh:
