Hello Marco,

I asked pretty much the same time ago and the answer was to use the HTML escape 
You should type an inverted slash \ followed by the escaped character code, 
that is:

& l d q u o ; for inverted commas “
& r a r r ; for a right arrow →


For French quotes they are:

& r a q u o ;


& l a q u o ;

I've added blanks between the letters in order to avoid rendering of the 
characters in this very message. You should type the code altogether and the 
special character will appear after you type the
last character of the code.

    Hi Guys,
    my laptop dual-boots Arch Linux and Windows 7, but I don't use Windows much.  
But I tried out [Shift + Alt Gr]<< for « on Windows 7 and it didn't work :(.  
I knew I preferred Linux but I didn't
    realise [Shift + Alt Gr] was part of the reason.

    So I installed /UK International keyboard/ from 
http://www.zolid.com/uk-intl-kb/index.htm and that seems to do the trick, using 
[Alt Gr + [] and [Alt Gr +]] from:

    Now I'm heading back to Arch  Linux, and my main desktop PC, as soon as 
    Hope this helps someone.

    Keybindings are an arcane rabbit-hole, especially cross-platform.

    For those on windoze I highly recommend getting into AutoHotKey; in fact 
now I'm on Linux I really miss it, wish the Linux version had gained a bit more 
traction, one of the VERY few things
    causes me any nostalgia for windoze.


        Hi Udo

        have you tried [Shift + Alt Gr]>> for « and  [Shift + Alt Gr]<< for 

        Works OK on my Arch Linux system.

            I need guillemets/angle quotes in my text, see
            Guillemet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

            The corresponding Windows keystrokes are
            [Alt+0187] for '»' and [Alt+0171] for '«'
            but Zim doesn't support [ALT+NumpadNumber].

            And I can't use the Symbol dialog, because I use automation
            for inserting these symbols.

            Any hints?

            Many thanks and greetings
