Microsoft's Word 2007 software gives you the ability to add more than just letters and numbers to your document. You can also add pictures, tables and symbols to create unique, content-rich documents. Arrows, fractions, monetary signs, scientific symbols and international characters are a few of the examples Microsoft mentions on its website as available in Word 2007. These symbols come as a built-in font that you can add through the "Symbols" group.
