If you want to type the Bitcoin currency character easily, you can add it to your keyboard layout. I'd share my new layout, but I personally use the Colemak layout and no one is using that anyway, I guess.

You can download the Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator (also works on windows 7) to edit it yourself.
If people let me know what keyboard layout they use, and what location for the ฿ is the most convenient, I might fix up some installers tomorrow.

I have the currency symbols assigned to AltGr on my Canadian French keyboard, but rather than using the baht sign (which I oppose), I use the three latin letters "BTC".

It seems the majority of users is using ฿ whenever a shorter version is needed, and it's also the winner of the poll.
What's probably going to be more important in the eventual result, though, is that mtgox is using ฿.

But of course you can do the same thing with Ƀ, or ฿©, or whatever you want.

Using the above tool, copy paste the following character into your wanted key:
Code:
Ƀ
Or, this character:
Code:
Ƀ⃝

What font/platform are you using? I think you know what the character should be. (It's a 20DD Combining Enclosing Circle)

I'm displaying it fine with Windows and the standard font set.

Windows 7, chrome, also standard font set I believe.
In firefox I see "฿O" (roughly), not combined.

Well maybe that isn't the best idea if firefox isn't displaying it right. IE does for me, though. And I believe that's what it should do, as the unicode specification indicates that it is a non-spacing character.

Why is it that i have the feeling that most of the persons who voted to use the Thai Baht symbol for Bitcoin are the same that gave Bruce a hard time because of the conference in Pataya?  Roll Eyes

On Mac OSX, I made it such that when I type the sequence "$" "B" that it creates the ฿ currency symbol.  You can do that in System Preferences > Language & Text > Text.  Once you've created the substitution, you may need to enable it in apps that don't have it turned on by default (i.e. Safari…you can often find the option to enable it under Edit > Substitutions > Text Replacement).

I think the official Bitcoin symbol should be the Baht but with two lines, and I will keep using the Baht symbol until Unicode gives us a Bitcoin symbol.

If Steve Jobs can add "steaming pile of poo" to Unicode (http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/1f4a9/index.htm) then I am sure we will eventually get our own Unicode symbol when the world realizes we are here to stay and are not just tulip mania.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

Great idea. Too bad chrome doesn't seem to support this.  I looked at TextExpander, but its $35 Sad

It also doesn't seem to do anything until you hit space. Which means you have to type "$B[space][delete]123" for ฿123
