Many thanks to all those who responded to my request for help. Copying from the Character Map was always an option, but what a tedious one it is. Special thanks to Klaus Mueller, for his solution and for the tip about BabelMap. I can well and truly retire Character Map now.
It is disappointing that Adobe would sprout on so much about FM 8's unicode credentials and yet fail completely in its documentation to explain how to enter unicode characters.
