Video Explaining How to Insert Special Symbols

This video explains 7 ways to insert a special symbol into an MS Office application (e.g., Word) or a website using HTML, CSS, or JavaScript:

How To Insert the 🞩 Symbol

(Method 1) Copy and paste the symbol.

Click on the 🞩 symbol from the table above. Press the "Copy" button, and then paste the symbol into your document.

(Method 2) Use the "Alt Code."

The Alt Code for 🞩 is Alt 128937. If you have a keyboard with a numeric pad, you can use this method. Simply hold down the Alt Key and type 128937. When you lift the Alt Key, 🞩 appears. ("Num Lock" must be on.)

(Method 3) Use the HTML Decimal Code (for webpages).

(Method 7) Use the Unicode (for various, e.g. Microsoft Office, JavaScript, Perl).

The Unicode for 🞩 is U+1F7A9. The important part is the hexadecimal number after the U+, which is used in various formats. For example, in Microsoft Office applications (e.g. Word, PowerPoint), do the following:
[Hold down Alt]
[Press x]
(Note that you can omit any leading zeros.)
In JavaScript, the syntax is \uXXXX. So, \u1F7A9 wouldn't work in JavaScript because it is a 5-character hexadecimal number. To insert this character in JavaScript, the UTF-16 format (\uXXXX\uXXXX) is needed.
JavaScript TextOutput
let str = "\uXXXX\uXXXX"
document.write("My symbol: " + str)
My symbol: 🞩
Read more about converting characters with a code place higher than 0x10000 (like this one) to the so-called UTF-16 format.

(Method 8) Use an Image (for various).

HTML TextOutput
<img src = "myImg.png"/>🞩
