    "check mark" is not a common term in Australia, and probably not in the UK either. Not in my dictionary, either.

    We would call that a "tick".

    Cheers
    Mick

    PS BTW the wiki for tick contains the codes you want!!

    I don't get it?!? what's the U in front of the code? if i press 'U' + that 4 digit number it just makes a lot of u's..lol

    i tried alt + those digits on that link..but that never made a 'tick'

    oh, and i don't have a character map on my computer..someone must've taken it off my PC or something..arrggh

    Not all windows apps will let you use Unicode. The key presses should be ALT + [number with a 0 in front]. So for a "tick" it should be ALT + 02713.

    If you use MS Word you can use the Insert Symbol on the Menu to go to either Symbol or Wingdings (both have a "tick"). I think you can even map key strokes using that (which will probably be only specific for MS Word then). If you have MS Word and want to insert a "tick" into another app that doesn't recognise the Unicode then you can use copy and paste (copy it in Word, paste into other app).

    Cheers
    Mick

    edit: Typical M$ different standards. Just tried it in MS Word using Symbol font - you have to type Alt + 2713 - no leading 0.

    Looks like you are using the wrong fonts. If you have System font loaded, that will do it.

    It's alt + v

    I'm on an English keyboard and I can make a check mark symbol by pressing ALT + v.

    Looks like this:



    Hope that helps.

    alt+10003 and in Bold alt+10004 can give you a check mark in MS Words.
    alt+251 = √ this could be seen as a check mark or a tick; but for engineers it is the square root symbol.

    If it is common, just explain. You're pretentious comments are kinda like being a dick. My pilot didn't know how to fly the plane until someone taught him/her
