The strange letter Ø

If you don't have the character Ø on your keyboard it's a little bit tricky to type Øredev.
But if you know that the Unicode is 00D8 - then it will be much easier.
On Windows XP you just hold the Alt-key down and type 0216 and release the Alt-key. If you want to know more about Unicode 00D8; click here .
