When I first started writing on the Apple Mac I came across the problem of how to enter in characters not found on the keyboard. As a Windows users I was familiar with using Alt Codes. But on the Mac I was lost.
After many hours of searching through the operating system I managed to find a strange tool called the Character Viewer. The most powerful library of characters the world has ever seen. Not only could I search and find the characters related to my language I could now search the world for every possible character in existence.
It was not long before I had ever language switched on and a sea of characters and utter confusion. But thanks to the Mac intelligence I was able to create a list of my most favorite characters and keep them in a safe place whenever I needed them.
Recently I upgraded my Macbook which came with Mac OS X version Snow Leopard. Apart from the new layouts and visual spender they have upgraded the viewer to make it faster and cleaner.
