What I usually do for this sort of thing in Windows is I use Office, have word insert a special character, I copy it, and then I do chartonum on the clipboard. It's been a long time since I had to do this though, so things may have changed. The last time I did this I developed in Foxpro! ICK!

I am using a Mac to create my app. I used Option + 4 on the Mac to create the ¢ symbol. Here is my question:  Will windows apps display correctly a label or edit field that has a cent symbol in it that was created on a Mac?
