Thanks all:
I tried it on my laptop and it worked just perfectly as Syed shows below.
I did it on my desktop special keyboard, and found that control-q was mapped
by another application for a different purpose.
I shut down the other application, rebooted the machine, and now it works
perfectly there as well.

I told you it was a dumb question!!

Thanks everyone for your responses.

When I press "control-q", then let go, then hold "shift" and press "0"
key for the letter ")", I get the Copyright symbol every time.

On a WinXP system (with FM 8, though).

A guess: are you perhaps not pressing the shift and 0 keys (together),
after letting go of the control-q?
