Zapf Your Own Dingbat
Private Character Editor
Windows has its own, hidden, character creator, called the Private Character Creator .
The Private Character Editor is accessed at Start>Run and enter "Eudcedit" without the quotes.
After you have constructed and saved the design of your choosing, you can access it from the Character Map by selecting Start>Run "Charmap".
Drop the Font selection list down and choose All Fonts (Private Characters), then click on the character you have created, copying and pasting it into any document.
Hermann Zapf designed some of the 20th century's most important fonts, including Palatino and Optima. He also produced a collection of decorative symbols called "dingbats", modeled after the accidental lead drippings collected by old style typesetters.
