First link is broken.

Worth noting that the second link is for Windows only.

We begin the work week with Monday, then Tuesday, and after that it's WTF! :P

Fixed the broken link and add windows information.

Now if these could be formatted on Word into multiple columns so it can be printed in a concise form.

For a windows pallet of characters put charmap in to your computer's search box.

More symbols than I could imagine  © ® § Æ  and hundreds I am not familiar with

Chinese Hebrew Korean Arabic and such are there too. 

Worth a look just so you know what is there.

Hit Control C then Control V to copy to your document.

I have pinned the pallet to my task bar.  Now I can bring it up with a click

Does not seem to work with the soapbox I get question marks and smiles when I drop the heart and music here.  Not sure what the problem is  ?

§ This symbol worked with CNTL C CNTL V

Probably the soapbox software does not recognize all Unicode characters.

A question: Has Unicode incorporated emoticons into its character set?

Some items will work better when copied to not pad.

I have noticed that not all fonts work well.  Use the common fonts for better results
