Not quite as easy, but OK for small volumes, if you have Windows NT 4.0,
and presumably 2000, or XP, the charmap utility allows you to assemble 
short phrases by picking on individual characters, then cut and paste them.
Windows 98 is nominally an 8 bit character operating system, so its charmap
is not a full Unicode one.

Note, for Chinese and Japanese, you need to install the relevant Global
Input Method Editor, which is covered by the basic Windows 98 (or NT) 
licence, although you will need a supported version of IE to run Windows
Update to obtain it (I think they are in the base distribution for later
versions of Windows).  This only supports certain applications, particularly
on Windows 98, because the base system is not Unicode aware.
