programs-accessories-system tools-character map
I have the shortcut on my Desktop.

Other times I just use *, because most people could give a rat's azz if punctuation and grammar are perfect; just so long as they understand what your saying. But then there are people who nitpick.

Here's one more attempt to help some of you understand this thread. Allow myself to quote...myself...

You may also be more susceptible to misunderstandings if you write poorly. Experience on this forum shows that a well written question is far more likely to be well received and well answered than a poorly phrased question or a question that appears to have been written by an adolescent hooch maker. So, that thread was created in hopes of facilitating better and more effective communication, not to suggest that we need to grade each other's posts on proper use of the language.

On a somewhat philosophical note, it seems awfully ignorant and/or lazy to be fully aware of the fact that one's writing skills are poor, yet intentionally refuse to use simple tools (i.e., spellcheck) that can help.

Choosing a poor font style, size and color can also make things unreadable much in the same way lack of punctuation and capitalization can make this somewhat simple idea difficult to comprehend ya dig

How about adding some acronyms?

SWMBO? (s** w** m*** b* o*****)
DWHAHB? (don't worry have a homebrew)
MLT? (I have no idea what this is?)
...

plus many more I probably haven't come across yet.

We have an informal acronym thread and a brew terms glossary (including abbreviations) in the wiki.

Here is a link to a cool site for those that are "word nerds."

http://www.wsu.edu/~brians/errors/errors.html#errors

I slept through most of my English classes and this site has been useful to me.
