Card Symbol: Spades, Hearts, Diamonds, Clubs

In earlier versions of Word I could find the suit symbols for a deck of playing cards so I could insert them into my documents when writing about Poker or Bridge. Now I can't find them. Are they gone? Where can I find them to insert into my documents?

I am using Microsoft Professional Plus 2010 version 14 32 bit
&
Microsoft Word for Mac version 14

Those characters are in several fonts. You can get at them easily in the Symbol font. In Word, from the Insert menu choose Symbol > Advanced Symbol to display the Symbol dialog box. Double-click a symbol to insert it into you Word document at the current cursor position.
