Which one did you get?

I apologize. I don't respond well to posts like Surel's and this whole thing has me on edge. Which is exactly why I was saying yesterday let's please not talk about it. (In fact, I couldn't get to sleep until about 6 a.m., worrying, which is why I'm home taking a sick day.) Anyhow, Peace Plan 3.0 was apparently reached overnight, so maybe it'll be a few months before the next round of drama. (The most depressing thing I read yesterday, at the end of a New York Times piece, I think, was some analyst saying "this conflict won't be resolved this month, or this year." Depressing but probably accurate. But if everyone keeps their cool and doesn't do anything stupid, we'll be looking back on this some day.)

But you do. :-P

I've just though of you this morning. I am accustomed to watch English news channels in morning between I get up and get ready to go to work to improve my English and this morning, I focused on CNN. You were goddamn right... there really were three different breaking news in a half of hour, mostly completely useless stories. That is what I call breaking-news inflation

But nothing can compare with this one I watch it sometimes just for the presenter's remarks.

Somewhere in Word, there's a "Symbols" key that opens up a sort of table, with, among many other things, capital and lower-case Greek and Cyrillic letters (in alphabetical order, too, and including letters used only in, say, Belarussian or Serbian); the euro symbol and I assume other currency symbols...you can click on the ones you want and they'll appear in your text. You even have some choice of fonts. (You may already know this; I just happened on it the other day. Not sure I could find it again, actually....) This would actually be useful to me if I knew any language that used Cyrillic, but it's nice to know it's there.

Sure there is, but it is not practical at all for writing texts with plenty of math content that isn't using LaTex.

€ = Alt Gr + E on my keyboard
$ = Shift + 4

I can't count signs I have seen in Greece and Montenegro where instead of the Euro sign (€) is written only ordinary E.

American keyboards have the dollar sign on shift 4...pounds or euros or yen, I'd need to do some other way. Now that I know about the symbols area....

CTR+ALT+5 = € with my keyboard. Alt Gr + E = é

I remember keyboards in the Netherlands used to have the pound sign, but they don't anymore.

A nice combination to remember is CTRL+ALT+2 or +3 which gives ² and ³.

My keyboard uses the US - international setting. It's also a QWERTY.

In my Italian keyboard € is AltGr+E. £ is shift+3, it was used before 2002 also as symbol for the Italian Lira. $ is shift+4, beside being a currency symbol is also used in programming.
