I missed just what this was pertaining to, but. . .

Temporarily, you can generate almost any character using the ALT key. At least this worked in DOS, and I guess it still does.

If you hold down the ALT key and hit the 0 5 8 key sequence on the numeric keypad, then let up on the ALT key, you will get a colon.

And, if you use the 0 5 9 sequence, then you get the semicolon.

Handy for dropping a cent mark in somewhere — use the 1 3 5 and you get ç. Useful for dropping an an occasional foreign character, also.
