Hi...

Make up a little table in Excel or Frame and 
print it...then laminate it and keep it nearby. 
These apply to almost every standard font when 
using a western style (USA) keyboard and the 
American English language. I can't speak for 
other keyboard layouts or other languages, but 
your version of Character Map can be used to sort this out for you.

The three columns in my table are:  Symbol, Keystroke and Name.

A couple of rows in my handy little table look like this:

?       Alt-0169                Copyright
?       Alt-0176                Plus/Minus

When you use these keystrokes, you are using the 
same font as the parastyle's default font. You're 
just accessing a different portion of the ASCII 
character map that you don't have keys for on 
your keyboard. Pasting in a similar symbol from 
another font (i.e., Symbol) introduces an 
paragraph format override, a practice which should be avoided.
