    Keyboard Characters


    I will soon need to create text documents in spanish. This language (as others) has specific character requirements. For example, a sentence that is a question begins with an upside down question mark, sometimes the letter 'n' has a small mark above it, etc. How do I proceed?

    -thx

    A really handy way is to use this freeware prog:
    AX
    Universal single-key accenting for Windows and Javascript

    Select the language you want (Spanish)

    Then select which special key you want to use (F8 default)

    To create a special/accented character simply type - say e - then F8

    é

    Here's ? F8
    ż

    ˇ - and that's ! F8

    It has a good help file: you can create your own character sets too or modify existing ones.
