Special characters stopped working

Specs: Windows XP, Intel Core 2
Yesterday the alt+ characters stopped working on my computer -- sort of. If I try to type one in a Word document or the body of an Outlook email, nothing happens. But I can type special characters as usual in the subject line of Outlook emails, in the URL bar of my browser, etc. I can't figure out what to change to make it so I can type special characters where I actually need them. Ergh.

Ha-HA! I figured it out. Num Lock was off. It would have been nice to know that it needed to be *on.* I guess now I know. ;)
