Windows Character Map?

I'm just curious. Why is the Character Map in Windows so buried? (Programs, Accessories, System Tools). I just cannot think of how it is a system tool. I always move it up a level in the Programs folder and whenever I get a new system or rebuild mine, I can never find it.

Okay I'm probably weird for needing it on a nearly daily basis, but I use at least 15 symbols not on the keyboard.

I always thought that was weird too. When I took Spanish in college I memorized the crazy keystroke commands for all the accented letters--it was much easier than trying to get to the character map every time!

I've got a few memorized. The degree symbol, plus-minus symbol, paragraph symbol, and section symbol. I always get the accented characters mixed up. Especially é and I use it all the time.
