Hi Hi Hi

I can't paste the symbols on Microsoft word for Mac 2011. When I paste some symbols, difference symbols come up. For example, I chose " ³ ", the letter " Ñ " came up. Interestingly, I could paste " ³ " here with no problem. I assume that Microsoft word 2011 won't recognize some of the symbols.

Are there any ways to use these symbols in Microsoft work Mac 2011?
