What I need to know is how to add the symbol for registered trademarks
(or copyrights)to some of our corporate logos when types into emails. 
For instance, if I use our trade name Gingatween (made-up name) how do
I get it to read Gingatween with the "R" or "C" in a circle indicating
it is a trademarked name?  Please let me know if you need more info.

I generally use Outlook Express, but there are many times I use Yahoo
or other "free" email services.  In addition, I want to be able to add
the copyright or trademark symbol when I am posting to a newsgroup. 
There must be a way to either download the font or to use the keyboard
to conjur up these symbols.

Hi thelonemonk,

The standard way to enter special characters in Microsoft Windows is
to turn on Num Lock if it's not already on, hold down the Alt key, and
enter a number on the numeric keypad.  It has to be on the numeric
keypad--it won't work with the number keys above the letter keys.

For the  character, the number is 0169.  The leading zero is
required:  169 will get you a different character.

For the  character, the number is 0174.

Besides testing this technique in this answer, I tested it with Yahoo
Mail! and it worked fine.

Alternately, you can run the Character Map program, select and copy a
character, then paste it into another application, but I think typing
in the number is easier.  You can find instructions on usng the
Character Map program here:

You should be aware that these characters are not in the ASCII
character set, which is the most universal one, so if you use them in
a Usenet post, there may be people who won't be able to read them.

If you need more information about any of this, please ask for a clarification.

Thanks for the help efn!  I knew how to get these symbols at one time
but I didn't remember I had to use the number keypad...that's the key!

If you're using Microsoft Office Outlook, click on 'Insert', then
'Symbol',and scroll through Symbols to either of the two characters
you need.
