If all else fails … on the Tool Bar, click INSERT and scroll down to SYMBOL.

You should see a table full of Symbols (Make sure you're NOT in the Special Characters pages).  Find the symbol you need, click the symbol and click INSERT.  You can also see what the "Shortcut Key" says underneath the table, it tells you what type in order for your symbol to appear.  PC computers will vary greatly on what the Shortcut Key is.
