Totally off topic.
I need to email someone urgently. She wrote her email address but I didn't look at it when she wrote it.
Her email addy, in very clear writing, is name.name*1@tiscali.co.uk, where *= a O with a diagonal line through it, which I can't even see how to insert here.
I can't see any way to put that symbol into the To line of an email in any of my three webmail programs. More confusing still, the way she's written it, clearly, it's not the usual non-ASCII O-slash, as her diagonal line goes top left to bottom right.
She seems not to be in the phone book and I have no other way of contacting her. Teach me to look at someone's email in future.
HELP please!

If it's not the Danish , then try zero (0):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slashed_zero
"The slashed zero glyph is often used to distinguish the digit "zero" ("0") from the Latin script letter "O" anywhere that the distinction is important"

People often add numbers if the desired email address is already taken.
name.name01 - looks plausible

Should that fail or someone finds this question in the future, here's a nice page of Extended ASCII codes.

http://www.ascii-code.com/

Hold ALT enter the DEC number (on the keypad, the numbers across the top of the keyboard do not work) Release the ALT key.

0 is not the same as 

(ps you can cut and paste it from the message?)

Thanks. I'm guessing that 01 was correct. The email didn't bounce, but she hasn't actually replied to it yet.
Remember she had deliberately written the 0 with the opposite diagonal direction.
Mind you, when I was in Italy, I couldn't find @ (chiocciola) on the Italian keyboard.
I shouldn't be allowed out, or near a computer, on my own.

Glad it worked... maybe.  ;)

You couldn't find the what? Ampersat, apetail, monkey tail, atmark, at symbol, commercial at ? Why would you be looking for a snail? LOL
