Charmap for Mac OS X

Thumbs up to Dean Allen @ for pointing out something I found once but ever since have been looking for.

Character Palette

Ever since moving from Windows to Mac OS X Tiger I’ve been missing the simplicity of the Character Map application (type ‘charmap’ in your Start -> Run dialogue). It’s not quite so easy to get to on the mac, which I think should probably be addressed, even searching for ‘character palette’ in Spotlight doesn’t throw it up.

Click on the flag, and select 'Character Palette' As Dean (founder of my webhost Textdrive, now called Joyent) pointed out the Palette can be found by clicking the Keyboard Language icon (the flag beside the clock) and selecting ‘Character Palette.’
