Hundreds of symbols that are not available on your keyboard are provided in Microsoft Word for use in your documents. For example, you can insert fractions (½), a degree symbol (°), pi (π), or currency symbols, such as the British pound symbol (£).

Coincidence. I spent ages yesterday search for the Greek symbol mu. Went all through Wingdings, Webdings Dingbats and whatever before I found it in Symbols. I changed the font for that letter then changed back. Bit easier this way.
You don't know of an easy way to find a particular symbol by any chance?

These tutorials on MS Office features and functions are all well written and comprehensive but .... I can't hold it in any longer.....
Why are you limiting these Word and Excel how-to's to 2013 when they are applicable to 2010, 2007 and, very likely, 2003? If you lose one reader that uses one of these latter versions who, because of the title, considers the topic irrelevant to them isn't that one reader too many?
Can I suggest that the version be left off the title and the first line of the article be something like "this applies to versions ......."

But what about features that don't work exactly the same in previous versions? We certainly can't test everything in 4 versions of Office, that would be extremely time-consuming. So we'd rather be accurate than inaccurate, which is why as a rule we only say what we've tested.
Although we could probably remove the version from the title and put in a disclaimer that it probably works the same in previous versions but that we haven't tested.

That would be acceptable and I'm sure others will pipe in to confirm or deny its applicability to other version or any differences or even workarounds in previous versions.
