You don't need such "feature" if you do it programmatically. The "feature" only exists in UI, helps inexperienced users. On the level of software development, there is no such thing as "special" character (how can it be "special", I wonder? Smile | :) ).

That was a question of a non-developer. In that sense, it's off-topic.

As mentioned here[^]:
Use a font that includes the characters you want and explicitly type the unicode number for the character in the string. For the Arial Unicode MS font you can type "\u20ac" and it will print the euro sign. You can check the codes for the font and their corresponding unicode number with the Windows Character Map (Start->Run->charmap.exe).
