Here’s an elegant solution to typing ï·² (fdfa fdf4 fdf2 characters) in a MS word or any MS Office documents.
To type ï·² in MS Word or any MS office Document:
(1) Type FDF2.
(2) Type ‘Alt+x’. (Hold on to ‘Alt’ key and press ‘x’ key.) As soon as you type ‘Alt+x”, ‘FDF2’ is converted to ï·²
Unicode for ‘ï·²’ is ‘FDF2’.
|Arabic Phrase/Word||English Transliteration||Unicode|
|ï·º||Sall Allahu alay-hi wa-sallam||FDFA|
For example, if you want to type ï·², then
(1) Type ‘FDF2’.
(2) Type ‘Alt + x’ (Hold on to ‘Alt’ key and press ‘x’ key). MS Word or any Office document will then convert FDF2 to ï·².
For the Unicode for all the Arabic characters, refer to this link.
Note: This technique works for all MS Office products. In case, due to some issue, if it doesn’t work for you, then add ‘U+’ to the Unicode and repeat the steps mentioned above.
To know the general techniques for inputting characters via Unicode in Windows, Mac, Linux, etc., check this Wikipedia link. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unicode_input).
