John Brandt’s Special Character Shortcuts is a beautiful, useful, comprehensive PDF that shows how to access any special character in any font. It can be used for finding the keystrokes necessary to type accented characters, ligatures, punctuation, currency and legal symbols, math and greek symbols. Keystrokes are listed for Mac and Windows, and also HTML codes for using these special characters on Web pages.
It also includes a special section on typing special nonprinting characters in QuarkXPress 7, as well as a clear description of how these special characters work, and a handy and informative typographer’s glossary.
