Does that work?
Check the top of your computer...under the 'Edit' drop down menu, is there a 'special characters' option? Click around in there.
Then, try hitting 'shift' and '?'--twice, in quick succession.
If that doesn't work, try a restart.
Bottom line--I think my IT department is out to lunch. Tee many martoonies. IT also thinks it may be some sort of HTML code or *possibly* there might be a 4-digit keyboard code that you hit. But, what are the chances of you inadvertently hitting the EXACT 4 digit code???
