How can I type the » (») character on the mac keyboard? I noticed that I can type a lot of other chacters by using cmd/control/option and keys, but what about this this one?


On a UK keyboard AltShift\ gives »

(Found by doing alt and every letter - finding Alt\ gives «)

Also via System Preferences > Keyboard > Check "Show Keyboard & Character Viewer in menu bar". Then from the menu bar choose "Keyboard Viewer" and this shows all the characters each key gives you, including the various combinations with Shift and other modifiers.

    Works on a US keyboard, too. [Alt] is the same as [Option]. – William Jackson Oct 1 '11 at 18:23
