Also, don't forget that Zim has its own typing shortcut for non-keyboard characters. The manual says you can type backslash SYMBOL-NAME space to get most of the named special characters from HTML. See this list: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_XML_and_HTML_character_entity_references. For example, if I type "\Yacute ", it gets converted by Zim to "Ý". This works on all Zim-suported platforms.
Again, we'll see if we can get the host OS's ALT+nnn method to work too in a future release.
