    This doesn't work! I can't believe that WordPress after after all the years and all the users still has this bug. Yes, you can click on special character palette kitchen sink, as shown in this video, and insert all sorts of symbols into the text you're working on, BUT as soon as you click on Preview or Save Draft on the right of the panel, ALL special characters turn into question marks (and show as question marks in the Preview) and all the effort is lost forever!
