See
http://sbarnhill.mvps.org/WordFAQs/LostSymbol.htm for the answer
to both questions.

Note that "Alt+Ctrl+num" is an incomplete description, and even when
you make it complete (the "num" part should be "the minus key on the
number pad", often abbreviated as "Num-") it's only the shortcut for
an em dash.
