Fiddle, fuddle [Unicode characters in Openoffice under Gnome]

Slightly off topic, but annoying enough that I thought it worthwhile.

If you’re ever trying to work out how to enter unicode characters with keyboard shortcuts in Openoffice under Gnome, then it’s Ctrl+Shift+u+XXXX+Space (where the XXXX is the unicode number), the space is the extra spice needed in Openoffice that isn’t needed in other Gnome apps. You wouldn’t believe how annoying that was to find.

UPDATED 12th April 2010: Added [] extra meaning in title.
