How Do I Enter Those Special Characters?

I found this out a few months ago—how to enter special characters into a document. I was using a form program called "PureEdge," and I needed to insert an em dash (—). Since I had Adobe InDesign handy, I just used the glyph menu and copied one from InDesign and pasted it into PureEdge. Sure, that worked for me, but not everyone has InDesign handy, and it takes much longer that way. A little Googling yielded the answer—ALT+0151 on the numeric keypad. As I found out, ALT+four digits on the keypad is how any special characters are entered (without some sort of character menu). Here is a list of all of them.
