Title: .. and sometimes !
Post by: Alr (Rayne) on August 08, 2003, 01:14:22 PM
All right, some people have recently been curious on how those funny letters are made. You know, the ones with the little flick above them? You see them in words like Kar, cr'll, and Cor. They are used commonly in the language of the elves, called styrsh, and show up in a lot around here! You can make them in a number of ways, but the easiest I've found is through what most people call alt codes. Each letter, even those that don't have a little flick above them, have an alt code, as well as a number of symbols like these:

To make these symbols, first make sure that your number lock (Num Lock) is on, or else it won't work. Then, push down on the alt key and push the letter's code in on the number pad (to the right of your keyboard), then let go of alt. The code of these letters (alt codes) are as follows:

= 160
= 130
= 161
= 162
= 163
= 0253

Try them out!

The numbers beginning with 16.  But I think it's just my computer acting up or something.

Maybe your six key isn't working.  Do you get anything?

I'll get you different combos for the mentioned "16" ones

The scorn and hate of the world
You see a hero, the light

Yea.

Stupid ezboard can't even handle our power.  It puts in '?' when it should be a cool square-root sign-like vee.

I can dig that, Eryk.

Seems that the board has a few mac users.  If this keeps up we will need to have a war between mac users and Canadians.

 Surely this can also be achieved just by holding down the Alt Gr Key?  At least it can on every other keyboard I've used.  Doesn't work with "y" though, just the vowels.
