Default Convert special character for text view

I'm so confused by the different ANSII versus Unicode versus Unicode Hex, etc character codes.
I basically have the unicode value for example #8211; and need to convert it to a number that plain text will recognize. When I try to issue Chr(8211) I get an error. It doesn't like the 8211. But what do I need to convert it to? It doesn't seem to like the ANSII equivalent using Chr(150) either. It doesn't give me an error, but prints a box. It should be an en dash.
