Geoffrey, The first method described here ("How to enter Unicode characters in Microsoft Windows") http://www.fileformat.info/tip/microsoft/enter_unicode.htm does work for me in FM8. You probably need to set the registry key EnableHexNumpad as described.
If you don't know your unicode (hex) values inside out, BabelMap http://www.babelstone.co.uk/Software/BabelMap.html is a cute tool to determine, convert and search for unicode chars (valuable tip by Stefan Gentz).
