Those are letters. I think the easiest way to use them is to change the language of the keyboard on your PC. Which editor are you using? The command prompt on DOS/Windows doesn't support all those characters and may print something peculiar instead.

If you are using Windows, press Windows + R and then enter: charmap

That will start the character map application, in which you can pick letters and other characters that are not on your keyboard by hand and copy & paste them into your editor.

Excellent suggestion Jesper! Just an additional comment if you don't want to manually copu/paste characters most of them have a shortcut associated. charmap will show it in bottom right (if applicable Alt + ...). You just hold down Alt and type the number like Alt + 0212 then release Alt and Presto! Please be sure to select the correct font as well (to match the editor font in Eclipse) as character mappings may be different

  • Right-click a panel
  • Add to panel
  • Character Palette
  • I have just áddéd à ©häraÇter palette. Click the letter or caret to change the options, then ctrl-V to paste the letter.

    But I still think it might be easier to change your keyboard language; I have mine set to German and English (UK) and it occasionally changes spontaneously and this sort of character appears mzsteriouslzÖ öäüß.
