insert-ascii

Insert an ASCII character into the buffer.  Alt-#

The command prompts for a numeric value, then inserts the ASCII character with that value into the buffer. By default, it interprets the number as a decimal value. To specify a hex value, prefix the number with the characters "0x". To specify an octal value, prefix the number with the characters "0o". To specify a binary value, prefix the number with the characters "0b".

This command can actually insert any Unicode character too, not just the ASCII subset. You can specify it numerically, as above, or use the syntax <Newline> or <Square Root>, using the official name of any Unicode character. Epsilon provides completion for this. Type ? to get a list of all the Unicode characters. You can use Ctrl-S as usual to search in the list for the one you want.
