Foreign letters/accents on English Keyboard?
    #1950821 - 09/25/03 12:46 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Trying to do a French paper here, but points will be taken off if I dont have the correct accents in the correct places. You know, the little slashes and swirls above letters that make them sound oh-so-wierd.

I was told the way to make my keyboard make these, but I seem to have forgotten. Someone must know?

If it is life that you feel you are missing I can tell you where to find it.  In the law courts, in business, in government.  There is nothing occurring in the streets. Nothing but a dumbshow composed of the helpless and the impotent.    -Cormac MacCarthy

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.  - Aeschylus

In the old days, on a PC, we used to use alt codes... like alt-132 (hold down alt, and type 1 3 2 on the number pad) and you will get a lowercase a with two dots over it: ?. I use LaTeX for any papers I write, so I cannot help you much.

Use the character map. It should be under accessories or system tools if your using windows.

If you're using MS Word, try the "Insert" menu item "Symbol". It will bring up a list of all the characters you can put into your text.

In Windows, Start/Run charmap.exe

Or Control Panel/Keyboard install the French layout, then you have accented A's and E's on the [ ; ' keys I think (at least with the Swiss they are there). You can switch layouts with Alt-Shift.
