Hopefully this works.
There are three ways to make special characters appear.
1. Have a keyboard with those characters on it. :)
2. Use an Alt-code.
---a. Depress the Alt-key and hold down.
---b. Type in a three digit number using the "Numeric Keypad" from 1-255
---c. Release the alt-key. One of the 256 characters in your font should appear.
3. Use the "Character map" in windows
---a. Hit start tab--->go to 'All programs'--->got to 'Accesories'--->go to 'system tools' ---> and click on character map (Should be on top).
---b. find the character(s) you want by 'Selecting' them.
---c. After selecting the characters you want hit 'Copy'
---d. Find the place you want to post your selected characters and make sure the cursor is flashing there.
---e. Go to 'edit' on the windows toolbar, and select 'paste'.
---f. At this point your characters should appear in your post.

Doesn't work on MW......yet.
And a link to the site. This was listed as freeware.

Probably because its not a Unicode font.

If your browser is set up to have a good Unicode font then most characters should display. See http://heima.olivant.fo/~styrheim/tools/runes/rtable.html (http://heima.olivant.fo/~styrheim/tools/runes/rtable.html)

I can see the fonts, but the MW server doesn't have the font so when I try to post the runes all I get is ABDE

Which means that you are not actually using runic characters. Instead you are using Latin characters and putting a font on them to make them look like other characters.
