    the alt + a number is a symbol shortcut from microsoft word, go in word press insert and symbol, click one then press shortcut key

    I like the idea but when you go to the folder "C:\Documents and Settings\\Desktop" you'll see a empty spot. I think someone will notice it sometimes so i need a way to hide that.

    hmhmmm lol. you can just put a space as the folders name instead of alt+0160 as they are basically the same thing. alt0160 counts as a character though while space does not, i think? well thats why i figure itll let me use it in some online forums and such in my user name when i get a msg saying no spaces allowed. probly screws with their db though.. just like the smilie i put in my user name ☺ alt+1 or ÇÆ5@☻¹Ú (random num pad mash) lol yeah they dont like that kind of stuff... is lulzy thou
