♥¶▲▒ Special Characters ☏

is there a simple way to create them other than copypaste?
on my windows installation i press alt+3 and get ♥ or alt+30 for ▲
can i somehow reproduce this in linux?
also is there a equivalent program to windows charmap?

Re: ♥¶▲▒ Special Characters ☏

Have a look at Wikipedia's entry on the compose key :-

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compose_key

I am able to type into rxvt using <AltGr><shift>, thus
<AltGr><shift>2A gives me Ä
although entering it into this box on the forum doesn't seem to work! In rxvt I can press <AltGr><shift>2 and then release the keys and then type a and that then gives me the lower case ä. The point of typing 2 is that the shifted version is " which sort of looks like an umlaut.
