How to Enter Symbol:

Given a Unicode-friendly PC document, Alt-8322 produces a subscript "2" as in CO₂ (HTML: ₂).
Alt-0160 provides a non-breaking space, useful for making a multi-part first name look like one string in a database or keeping a space from breaking across lines. See more on spaces and half spaces at the bottom of this page. .
Alt-0173 provides a non-breaking hyphen for when you want a hyphenated word to stick together (NOT break across lines). Non-breaking hyphen: ‑

*Alt-0160 (entered on PC with numeric keypad) is a non-breaking space. It's handy in HTML if you want a couple non-collapsing spaces in a row.  

Pronunciation Clarifiers & Diacritical Marks (ā ē ī ō ū - more here & here)
- A "nonspacing" overline/overbar/vinculum indicates a repeating number or set of numbers, but this does format properly online: ̅
- Methods are available within MS Word to add diacritical marks to characters.
- Overlines are also used to represent a sample mean.
- The macron (line over single character) indicates a long vowel pronunciation:  ̄  (e.g. the Ō in RŌKɅ glasses & ŌURA ring)
- Marriot Bonvo̱y uses a stylized "combining macron" under the letter o with no impact on pronunciation. o̱ (o̱ and o̱ both work)
- Combining/conjoining macron: ︦ test: 4︦5

Peace, love & happiness! ☮ ❤ 😊 • Thanks to http://www.fileformat.info for their well-organized library of special symbols and emojis. For clarity, these :) :( are text emoticons (an arrangement of more than one standard text character), and emojis are images generated through Unicode. Here is a page with lots of emoticons.
Also see the official Unicode emoji list here for renderings on multiple platforms (PC, Mac, phone, etc.). Unicode is a subset of ISO 10646.

⊘ 🍏: Indicates there may be issues displaying this symbol on the Mac, iPad or iPhone (based on my experience with my iPad). The "info" symbol (aka "Circled Information Source," HTML decimal entity "🛈" and hex entity "🛈" rendered as 🛈) shown at the start of this paragraph does not render properly on my Android Samsung phone. It is a very useful and common symbol that is also NOT supported in some Apple environments, like my iPad Air on ios 12.4.2 as of November 2019. As an alternative, here is the "Information Source" (typical inconsistency: no surround on Windows, circled on Android, square surround on iPad), which does work on my old iPad: ℹ

Top Another way to make a superscript is to use the <SUP> and </SUP> tags [in code view] on either side of the digit(s) or letter(s) you want to raise. To make a subscript, use the <SUB> and </SUB> tags. Subscripts and superscripts are inline elements, aka "text-level" elements.
See here for more tips on entering in Microsoft applications. The clover can be entered in Word by typing 2618 then pressing and holding ALT while typing x, but it can also be entered by holding ALT while typing 9752 on the numeric keypad. (Notice this does not work in Dreamweaver.)
Keep in mind that the font you're using may impact whether or not the symbol will display properly.

OTHER NOTES:

  1. The Euro (€) symbol replaced the previous "Euro Currency Unit" symbol (₠) on January 1, 1999.
  2. The "paragraph" symbol/mark (alt-0182) ¶ is now called the "pilcrow." The pilcrow was a type of rubrication used in the Middle Ages to mark a new train of thought, before the convention of visually discrete paragraphs was commonplace. The word pilcrow originates from the Greek word paragraphos. This was rendered in Old French as paragraphe and later changed to pelagraphe. The earliest reference of the modern pilcrow is in 1440 with the Middle English word pylcrafte.
  3. Alt-code shortcuts work in applications using Unicode character encoding to convert the code into symbols. The DECIMAL code usually works with the Alt key in Windows-based applications. Unfortunately, the code may work in MS Word but not MS Notepad. The HEXADECIMAL code (limited to 4 digit codes) works with option key on Mac. For third party applications, it depends on which encoding they adopt. Here is a hexadecimal-to-decimal converter.
