    Are there special codes for characters that can be used in email and Pages? For example, I frequently need to use the section symbol, but I don't know where to find it.

    Disregard my post. I found a list of "alt codes" using Google.

    I use an ugly workaround - I keep a document in My Documents in Pages that contains all the special characters that I want to use and then copy and paste them as necessary.

    Looks good - still looking for superscript and subscript - both Hayley and I want a keyboard for that. I keep a superscript, subscript and footnote 'template' in my Pages My Documents too.

    Just can't see using a keyboard with my iPad, I might as well take my laptop. I'm betting there is an app for super and subscript....Out there, somewhere :)

    A folding Bluetooth keyboard is so small that you're never tempted not to take it and, if you're a touch typist (mis-spent youth) the on-screen keyboard is hard work.

    I'm no touch typist, but manage around 65 words a minute...Funny, I find the iPad keyboard better than my laptop..the lappy has a full sized one too...it's just so soft. With this, you know younger hitting a key :)

    I agree ~ I type over 100 words a min, so when I need to do lots of typing or moderating, I bring my HP Mini or use my desk top.

    I thought I was fast at 65-70 words a minute - but 100!! No wonder you have so many posts :D

    Fast?

    I wish, a good secratery ( the use of whom I have) can knock out + 150 a minute, whilst talking. I used to be faster, but still need to glance at the keyboard. Put an unfamiliar keyboard in front of me and I'd be even more pathetic :D

    You are all speed demons. I doubt I could crank out more than 30 wpm, 40 if I ignore the mistakes.
