    Symbols for CR/LF (Word97/SR2)

    It's late at night and/or I'm going blind. I can't find (Insert, Symbol, ...) suitable symbols to represent a carriage-return and a line-feed in my Word document.

    I'm writing a note on analyzing strings, and I want to place a character in each cell of a table, like this:

    [ a l p h ] CR LF k e y 1 = 3 4

    But rather than type the two characters "CR", I want a single character, a symbol if I must. Can't find it in any of the supplied character sets. Likewise I'd like a single symbol/character rather than the two letters "LF".

    I can see the cute backwards-P for a paragraph mark.

    If you have Arial Unicode MS, then they are in the Control Pictures subset. See attached screen shot.

    Sam, thanks for this.

    I don't have the Arial Unicode installed. I can grab it tonight (at 1.4M or 1.7M it falls into the night-time-download category.)

    You are, I think, by way of recommending Arial Unicode MS, confirming that there are no suitable characters in the regular installation of MSWord97. I'm not comitting you; just feeling better about my eyesight!

    Thanks again.

    I'd like to see a keyboard button font. Thought I saw one once a while back. A user manual would look great if it showed the actual button. Know where I can get such a font?

    I love the site <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.fontasy.org>http://www.fontasy.org</A> You may find it there... I seem to remember having the font of which you speak at home (I'll have to check to see if my darling deleted my fonts from my system before he loaded my new OS)
    That site was offline for a while but I just looked and it's back! I have to update my links page when I get home to add it back on.
    hope that helps.
    have fun

    Talk about expressing yourself! The fonts are stunning. Thanks for the link.

    Re: Symbols for CR/LF (Word97/SR2)

    You're welcome. There's a web site somewhere. I grabbed them back in '96, as you can see. If you find the web site there my by now be an improved version.

    Those Unicode characters from "Control Pictures" are nice to look at binary files in Word. I've written an import macro that replaces the control characters (0 to 31) with the Unicode characters.

    It's easy to read, no lost characters, no line/page breaks
