From the book The Glyphs Panel

The Glyphs Panel

Illustrator’s Glyphs panel (Window> Type> Glyphs) provides quick access to a wide variety of special characters (like * or ), including any ligatures, ornaments, swashes, and fractions included with a given font. Use the list box to narrow your search of a font for the type of letterform you’re seeking. With the Type tool, click to place the insertion point, then double-click the character you want in the Glyphs panel to insert it in the text.
