Framemaker does not appear to handle hexadecimal values using the ALT +
numeric keypad values.  It does handle decimal values but I can't determine
what the different code points (character values) are mapped to. ALT+8734
results in a solid triangle for me.

You can select File > Utilities >Character Palete and then use the single,
double and triple scroll buttons to move down to 221, then look in column E
to find the infinity symbol.  Click it to insert the character into your
content.
