Copyright Symbol?

Anyone know how to have the copyright symbol display without using the '@' sign or the '(c)' key combinations? Is it available?

Not important, just my a... retentive side wishing to shore up some scripts with a true copyright symbol.

I'm not exactly sure what you're asking. Most scripts are written in ascii which does not support the copyright symbol. Even if you switch to a character set with a copyright symbol, the user would need a font that supports it.

On the web you can do this: © but again if I'm using a text browser on an old ascii terminal I won't be able to see it.

You figured out what I was asking...

I figured there wouldn't be a viable option--at least not one worth pursuing. Like I said it's not a big issue, just wanted to know if there was a simple way to do a copyright notice in UNIX (similar to what the HTML code you indicated does on the web -- '&'copy', right?), but I see your point with the font issue.

Thanks for the reply!
