    If you are expecting arbitrary government regulation to make some kind of sense, you haven't really been around the block.

    David,

    Go to any dictionary-type website and type in the word you're trying to spell. Doesn't matter if it's butchered. The site should select some differing alternate spellings and words and the one you want, with the needed correct accent, should be displayed. Then use your mouse to cut just the letter and paste it into your document.

    I have used this method without fail for years; never used a desktop app or widget to select an accented letter. Try www.dictionary.com. The character site already listed is a rich source as well.

    s-a

    I know that I am not 'semi-ambivalent' about that response, semi-ambivalent. You have just achieved that which the high-tech crowd was never able to achieve: common sense!

    This is the kind of response that I truly cherish: elegant, eloquent, enduring, endearing! How I love the nascent, low tech, uncomplicated daring on your part. And if it happens to be the wrong size or font, simply change it. Even I know how to do that! Again, thank you.

    Well, a photographer that I know seems to have a specific vision about nudes. There was an opening of his exhibition recently and it was... well... in style http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYbE6NvJSxk

    Don't forget you can create a document of your own with a collection of all your needed characters, save it and you can bypass the internet part altogether.

    Hehe... no no, I wasn't surprised that this happened so much as baffled at the idiocy of it all... and yes this is typical government business I suppose...

    You have to lock the numeric keypad for "numbers", in my keyboard this is done with the "Bloc Num" which is in the upper-left position of the numeric keypad. You probably also have a LED on the keyboard signalling the block.

    After you do that, you keep Alt pressed and you dial the number and you should obtain the character.

    On certain keyboards you can also use the numbers in the first row (above the QWERTY row).

    OK, Diapositivo, I did this and get an 'a' with the proper accent (when I finally release the ALT). How do I get the 'e' with the proper accent. Semi-ambivalant's answer is more understandable to me. But I would like to know both ways.

    I will do this again: NUM LOCK lit, then: ALT (remains pressed) then 0224. Result? Ó (this is what I got after releasing the ALT after typing in 0224). - David Lyga

    You can find the "Alt codes" at this page:

    http://www.angelfire.com/ak2/timothydrew/altkeys.html

    As said, "e" can have both accents in Italian.
    Ŕ is obtained with Alt - 0232
    Ú is obtained with Alt - 0233

    The best thing is to print a table and keep it ready on the (physical) desktop, the alt codes are very fast, faster than making all the copy-and-paste from another page, especially considering that after a while they can be learned by memory.
