font/unicode question

I have kind of an odd/tough question. I have a font with several characters
that are encoded only in Unicode...I think. When I open up Character Map, I
can see the characters there and it of course gives me the Unicode numbers
for it. These characters have no corresponding keyboard key or Alt code. They
appear to be solely Unicode. Normally, in such a case, in the Character Map I
can hit Select and Copy and then paste the character in whatever text program
I want. For some reason though, I can't with these characters. I don't know
if the font is damaged or what. I've tried everything I can think of but it
won't allow me to use them. Is there a way to straight type in a Unicode
character given the Unicode coding numbers or is the Select and Copy the only
way to access these?
*confused and annoyed*

Thank you, but I'm sorry, that doesn't help. I know all about Alt codes. The
characters I'm trying to get to don't have corresponding Alt codes, only
Unicode codes.
