How to input special characters w/o numpad?

On keyboards without the 10-key numeric pad, is it possible to type alt-key codes? I know some laptops have a 10-key overlay that, but besides those, how can it be done?

You cant use codes like Alt+123 but you can use other input methods.

As I wrote in a recent answer, some applications allow you to type the hex value of a character and into a document and to then convert that sequence into a single Unicode characters by pressing Alt+X afterwards.
