    Question Is it possible to type ASCII code characters ...

    Is it possible to type ASCII code characters from the keyboard directly into text or other type documents?

    I'm still getting used to the iOS world having only navigated back to recently. In the Windows world, you can hold down the Alt key and then type the ASCII character code and the appropriate character will appear. I have been able to find no equivalent in the iOS world.

    I know about the Special Characters menu under Edit. It doesn't have the characters I'm looking for.

    In particular, I was hoping to be able to type in the box form characters. The ASCII for some of them are 179 - 223.

    Any assistance, even if a positive negative, would be useful.

    Thanks in advance for any help offered.
    I know you think you understood what you think I said but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
