    That's true. The possibilities depend on Windows version, software used,
    its version, and even registry settings.

    On Windows XP, using Alt followed by _decimal_ digits that
    constitute the _decimal_ code number, using the numeric keypad both for
    the "+" and the digits, works in quite a many programs.

    You can also make Alt + nnnn work with nnnn in hexadecimal, but this often
    (mostly?) requires changing the registry settings.
