For those using Windows (and I believe OS/2), there's a delightful program
which is freely distributed by DEC called COMPOSE. It emulates the compose
key on their old word processing systems, and allows mnemonic, systematic
access to special characters in most appliations.
It's available at the WINSITE FTP site and other places (such as AOL).
