Typing should not be a problem generally. There are a lot of 3d-party apps which can bind a key to specific char input, system-wide. On windows I use Autohotkey. But no 100% guarantee of course for any editor. > And what decent fonts do I need to install for ≜ to show up as something > other than a square box ("missing glyph")? Well, here it is way less optimistic :) The chances to see that "delta equal to" sign in some random font / random app is not so big. It's only if you have fonts fallback system setup, and by default on my windows it seems to work only in Firefox browser.
