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.
- Feature Request: Add editor buttons for symbols common to the subject
- Put the ⌃⌥⇧⌘⎋⏏⌫↑⇡↖⇞⇥ characters somewhere for people to copy/paste
For now, you can bookmark either of those and use it to copy/paste if your preferred keyboard doesn't have these readily available.
