“Cool nice symbol” , these were my first reaction when I got to know that Indian Rupee has finally got it’s symbol. Even though the party was not over, the problem was how to put that into keyboard. Sunday Morning –> Times of India –> First Page Bottom Section, we have the problem solved (even though temporarily). Nice !
Rupee
Some company Foradian Technologies has done it by creating a font called Rupee-Foradian. Superb Job ! If you want to use it straight way in your word documents, then this is how you can do it.
Step 1: Download the font from here. This will open the Foradian’s page.
Step 2: Copy the font to folder “C:\Windows\Fonts” on your PC\Laptop.
Step 3: Map it to the least used key ‘Tilde’ on your keyboard. As suggested by the Foradian CEO, use the one above your Tab key.
Step 4: Open Window Word. Enter the Tilde key. Select it and right click and from the options available click “Font”.
Step 5: The first drop down ‘Latin Text Font’, scroll to find ‘Rupee Foradian’ and select. Click OK. You are done.
Step 6: Press the Tilde key, you will find the new symbol `. It’s damn simple steps.
Sorry this would not help you to enter this symbol in your Facebook Status, I tried it but failed.
Thanks a lot to Foradian Technologies. Unni Koroth – Brilliant Job !

  2. Absolutely... Because Facebook/Gmail/gtalk has limited support for Fonts. This you can use mostly in Word Document or any editor which allows you to edit Fonts.
