From Pio:

Here's how to make those characters used in spelling and to show pronunciation of Elvish Words (+ a few other interesting letters you may or may not need):

Press and hold down the ALT key while typing the four number code on your NUMPAD, then release ALT.
(On some laptops without a separate number pad on the keyboard you will need to press the ALT+FN keys together while typing the number code)

On most computers with Windows, you can click on Start then All Programs then System Tools then Character Map. This brings up a handy tool for finding all those odd and assorted characters not usually found on a standard American keyboard. You can select the character you want, copy it, and insert it into your document, post, etc.

Want some help writing some inspired Sindarin or Khazdul? Looking for some Black Speech to lend a bit of colour to your orc characterization? Try these links.

Ardalambion, of the tongues of Arda
