Add Special Chars to WordPress TinyMCE Char Map

Had an issue where a clients blog post had one of these in the post and it wasn’t being displayed right. The real issue was changing the ‘post_content’ field of the wp_posts table to UTF-8 Unicode (utf8mb4) from cp1252 West European, but (!) along the way I tried this.

Put this in a plugin or functions.php and the elements will show up in TinyMCE’s char map.

Also, here’s a nice char reference.
