Description:

This is a krunner-plugin for creating special characters from its hexadecimal-code or defined aliases.
example:
you want an alpha:
You open krunner(ALT+F2) and type #3b1.
As result you see α(alpha).
As alternative you can define an alias in the config-dialog, so you can type e.g. #a instead of #3b1.
Activating the result moves it into the edit area and copies the character to the clipboard.

Needs KDE 4.4
Will be part of KDE 4.5

Even better than that would be to be able to show to symbol based on its name.

e.g. circumflex -> ^
tilde -> ~

you get the picture...
C

Now you can define aliases so it is possible to write e.g. #tilde to get a ~.
