Here's a link to how to do it usually.  Some software requires a different method.  Some keyboards have a key you can reassign to any code(figure) you want.  Some software won't allow special key codes.

Google "ascii key code map" for a chart of the available figures.

Very minor quibble: The heart character is not actually part of the ASCII character set, which only covers the characters 0 through 127. It's part of the "extended ASCII" -- I forget the exact name of that character set -- which the IBM PCs standardized upon.

As Re-design mentions, some programs won't accept it, or use a different encoding.
