It used to be that alt codes (e.g. alt + numeric keypad 7 = a bullet point) would work; they don't seem to work any longer. Any particular reason why? Just curious.

Yeah, it's something I've been trying to fix. Well, I sort of caused it at the same time.
See: https://gametz.com/Site_Feedback/apostrophe-bug-mo...

The character encoding of the site (which affect special characters, including bullets as well as "smart punctuation" and lots of other non-standard letters, numbers, and punctuation) is causing some issues. So, I changed it to UTF-8, but that broke alt codes (as well as copy/pasting of special characters).

I may just change it back for now... that will break whitefilre's original search case, but maybe that's more rare...

I changed it back, so I think alt-codes will work again now.
