Thank you for the very quick answer. I read Mr. Lindsay's instruction. 
It worked, and quite easily. I also tried to just use the character in 
mkiv. That didn't work. However, in mkii, I tried the following:

\definecharacter crosssign    {\uchar{39}{29}}

Here is the \crosssign\ in a sentence.


That worked too, and seems easier.

I would like to figure it out it mkiv as well. I type the character in 
VIM, but it showed up as a space in the PDF.
