    1. Try googling it. I found this, but I don't know if it will work since I have a PC.
      Hope it works!

      See Thomas R's response.

      "Go to System Preferences -> Language & Text (or whatever it's called in Mac OS X 10.5), go to the Input Sources item and check the box next to Keyboard & Character viewer. That will add a menu at the right side of your menu bar that allows you to show the Character Viewer. Do that, and find the heart symbol (among the many, many other symbols). Double-click it to insert it."
