Special characters for orkut

Recently analyzing the traffic to my site I found that some wanted to know how to insert special characters in Orkut, yeah the fancy one's... So here is the info for them ...

Method 1
If you are on windows, take the character map from Start Menu > Programs > Accessories > System tools > Character Map.
You will find all the special characters you need in there.
Double clicking a character adds it to the text box below and when you have made your text in fancy just press Copy, and then paste wherever you want. Those having info about other OS please leave a comment ...

Method 2
You can enter special characters by :
Hold Down ALT
Type a number on the numeric keypad (1-255)
Release ALT
Now you will see a character appearing, enter different codes for different characters.
This was for windows, know about other OS? lemme know ...

Method 3
Just browse through profiles and you will find many characters, copy and paste. ;)

Here are some characters for you ...
Select | Copy | Paste

(Hope your browser renders the characters)

You can find more characters on the unicode character charts found at unicode, including one's with your local language.

Happy orkutting ...

No you cannot post images on someone's scrapbook. For posting images you would have to insert HTML tags <img src= ... >. This is not allowed on orkut, to prevent XSS.

Earlier you could do that (think it was around Aug 15th) because there was a flaw in the system and you could inject html into scrapbook. But now they have fixed it. So you cannot post images on scrapbook (until a flaw is discovered).

Alternatively, you can post the link to the image.

OR

You can also make an ASCII art of the image and paste that.

Orkut had another security flaw sometime back.You could get anyone's email id without them accepting you as a friend.How? just add them and try to delete and voila - success.

they have rectified this.
