Sorry, I formulated by statement poorly. I meant the author of the page
confused the notations. Maybe it's just a copy & paste error when he
writes, in item 1,
"EG: ALT+0165 yields a Yen symbol (¥)"
and later in item 2 that
"EG: ALT+++0165 yields ¥."
(On the page, it looks better, since the characters indicating keyboard
keys have been styled to look that way. I still find it confusing to use
"+" or "-" in notations like this, especially in contexts that might
involve the use of a "+" or "-" key.)

They could be tuned to accommodate Unicode, though. Admittedly, it was too
optimistic to take the promise seriously. Although one could make a
particular program on Win 95 or Win 98 support Unicode (through
program-specific I/O routines and data representation), it's difficult to
see how this could work across applications.
