Can you type them in a browser?

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

Alas no; they show up as squares with the hex codes in them (008D, 008F etc.).

Try putting a zero in front.

Look at Accessories >> Symbol Tools >> Character map

It should show the correct keystroke that should work.

This is not just a question of typing (leading zeros or not). The characters in these slots simply vanish (become spaces) when the font and some document written with it is copied from an XP to a Vista or Win7 computer (whether it's an MSWord or a WordPad or an Excel file or whatever). And they can't be typed there with ANY method. If I symbol encode the font they reappear, but then, a symbol encoded font can't be used in word processing (no word wrap, no kerning pairs). And please observe that OEM encoding doesn't help; the font was OEM encoded in the first place.
