There is also alt+numpad mechanism for typing Unicode symbols. With
NUMLOCK on it is possible to enter a Unicode symbol by pressing Alt
and entering a numerical value of a symbol with numpad keys. At least
with recent version of windows it should work almost everywhere.

A Tise pop-up window to enter a Unicode symbol will add little to
already existing standard mechanism.

I'd rather not hard code any of non-EWTS symbols into Tise. If my time
allows, it will be better to provide customization options that will
allow to redefine keys to one's own taste.
