A typical case for using the Unicode Character Table would be to insert special characters, e.g. Σ (u+2211) in an XML document. One example of how to insert a Unicode character "Σ" into an XML document is described below:

  1. Open the XML Editor Perspective in the TextGridLab.
  2. Double-click the selected XML document in the Navigator to open it.
  3. Click or double-click the hidden tab “Unicode Character Table” next to the Navigator and Metadata Editor to open the Unicode Character Table View.
  4. Place the mouse pointer in the XML document where the special character is needed.
  5. Select Σ from the table with mathematical operators and click “Insert”.
  6. Σ will be added to the XML document.
