    I, too, was enamored with Android screenshots when I first saw them on a couple of blogs :)

    I found that installing the SDK and whatnot took less than 15 mins. The only annoyance is that, since it requires being connected via USB, you can't take screenshots of anything which uses the SD card, so no Pictures folder, etc.

    Back to the original topic, though, there's a lot of special characters on Android...I discovered them by mistake by pressing down the S key for too long. Nice if you want to talk about foreign currencies and whatnot.

    First press and hold the Alt key then the 'E' key ...

    This is the same as any of the symbols in the color of the ALT key ...

    Depending on the keyboard install and in use ... in some cases long-pressing will bring up an option list of characaters that can be selected ...

    You amy also want to ckeck you settings for Locale ..
