The "symbol font" has traditionally been used to display, for example, Greek characters such as the micro (μ) symbol. The symbol font had differing implementions across different platforms and has been replaced by the unicode specification. This wiki uses a unicode translation table to provide a shortcut access to commonly used symbols. Characters prefixed with a tilde (~) are replaced with the corresponding symbol in the translation table. The current translation table is:

Characters not listed above in the translation table are presented unaltered when prefixed by tilde (~). Directly "cutting and pasting" in symbols from various other text applications will lead to unpredictable results and is not recommended.

⚠ Note: you will need to have a font installed that provides unicode support. The code2000 font (http://home.att.net/~jameskass/) is one such shareware example.
