Rand:  On my Word 97 (and probably yours is not really different) you
can click on 'insert' then 'symbol' and a large chart of special symbols
will appear, including copyright, squared, etc. etc.  If you're using
e-mail, you can open MS word, go to symbol, click on the X, click
'insert' which will make it appear on a blank document, highlight the X,
do edit-copy, then go back into e-mail and do edit-paste-special to get 
the symbol X into your message.  If you don't do edit-paste-special,
just edit-paste, you'll get a question mark, instead.

Experiment and see how your computer reacts.
