And how could I forget the character map.  It may be a bit clumsy, but
it does work.

Point and click the one you want and then copy to your document.  Best
to have one session finding all you need and copy them as a block to
your document so that you don't need to keep coming back.

(Or you could make up a character set in the Gnome Character Pallette
Applet which you can install on one of your panels.)
