Hi Bruce,

thanks for chiming in. You are of course correct. This is not my issue. 
Thank very much.

Insert+numrow 4 brings up a list of some common special symbols. This
list is by no means exhaustive, and if one wishes to use these symbols
on some kind of a regular basis, one would do well to learn the
keystrokes within Word to generate them. As one example,
control+apostrophe, followed by the letter e, yields an e-acute.
