How would I get ⌥⌘ to appear as the keyboard characters themselves which I see often embedded in responses?

Wrap your characters as follows:

<kbd>Esc</kbd> = Esc

To type the characters themselves in the first place depends upon the OS you are using. Android and iOS have different keyboards and unicode entry methods. Same for windows and Mac. There is a feature request to add the Mac typical characters to the text entry and formatting controls, but it doesn't have enough votes or developer support to get implemented yet.

For now, you can bookmark either of those and use it to copy/paste if your preferred keyboard doesn't have these readily available.
