    Engine room, learning
    Alt and decimal value gives me the arrow too.

    I don't know if it will work, but I found that you could input unicode hex code after modifying your registry
    set HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Input Method\EnableHexNumpad to 1
    reboot
    then you can press Alt and "+" on the numpad, then type the unicode hex value 221a and release Alt.

    However its Quote Sand that this won't work out of the box.
