In my case, I used the KDE application "KCharSelect". I manually hunt
through the tables for the character I want (which sucks), click on the
characters I want, and copy and paste them into my editor.
Back in Ancient Days when I ran Mac OS 6, I had memorised many keyboard
shortcuts for these things. Option-4 was the pound sign, I believe, and
Option-Shift-4 the cent sign. Or perhaps the other way around?
