ok... you make think i'm dumb for even asking this, but i have a question. i chat every day with msn messenger. as you know you can change your name to whatever you like. a friend of mine changed her name on there to a bunch of symbols using character map. i cannot find the character map. i know it's supposed to be in system tools. but it's not there. any of you know how to get it to show up there? i remember i did that w/ the clipboard viewer, but i don't remember how i did it. it was a tip on techtv's show, the screensavers or something. anyway... i'm running windows98 and if anyone can help me that would be great. also... i tried this at school, since the map is right where it's supposed to be under system tools. and i changed my name and whatnot, and it shows up on my message window as all the symbols but it doesn't show up to anyone else. can you tell me why? the only explanation i can give is the messenger at school is the version that came out just before the one that's out now. but that doesn't explain much to me because if it had to do w/ that then why would my friend's name show up as all the symbols? hopefully i haven't confused you and you can help me. thanks.
