P.S. Here's one I gave to most of my students. It's not as complete but easier to read:
The Accents on the PC:
Whenever you want to write the accents just make sure that your NUM LOCK (the top right side of your keyboard) is on; then, hold down the ALT key on the bottom left side of your keyboard and press the corresponding numbers (given below) on your number pad at the same time:
Accents and Corresponding Numbers to hold down
à=133 é=130 ï=139 ô=147 û=150 ~=126
â=131 è=138 î=140 ö=148 ù=151 ñ=164
ä=132 É=144 ì=141 ó=162 ú=163 Ñ=165
Ä=142 ê=136 í=161 ò=149 ü=129 ¡=173
á=160 ë=137 Ö=153 Ü=154 ¿=168
æ=145 œ=0156 ç=135
We are sure that you will enjoy trying all the accents and punctuation. Suggestion: create some stickers and place them around your screen so that you have your codes at all times.
Here are just the French accents; hold down ALT and press:
130 and you have é
136 and you have ê
138 and you have è
137 and you have ë
133 and you have à
131 and you have â
150 and you have û
151 and you have ù
135 and you have ç
147 and you have ô
140 and you get î (s'il te plaît)
In case you could use the "hcart" for making accents on the computer, PC with Windows (which it looks like you have):
Use the ALT key, and press the corresponding numbers on your number pad at the same time, (make sure number lock is on):
Windows, IBM compatible
á = alt + 0255
é = alt + 0233
í = alt + 0237
ú = alt + 0250
ñ = alt + 0241
¡ = alt + 0161
¿ = alt + 0191
ó = alt + 0243
To make accents in a PC:
In Control Panel, open Keyboard.
In keyboard properties: change to US, International.
Click ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, etc. you are all set.
In Main/Control Panel, open International.
Change Keyboard to US International
ok,ok,ok,ok etc. Reboot and you're all set. I have personally done this and it works for me just fine... Dawn
á (accentuated a)= apostrophe and then a
é (accentuated e) = apostrophe and then e
í (accentuated i) = apostrophe and then i
ó (accentuated o) = apostrophe and then oSpanish, PC, Windows98
ú (accentuated u) = apostrophe and then u
ü (daeresis u) = shift+apostrophe and then u
¿ = ctrl+alt+? (in some programs left alt+0191) (in the number pad with caps lock on)
¡ = ctrl+alt+1 (in some programs left alt+0161)
ñ = ctrl+alt+n (in some programs left alt+0241)
Accents on the MAC:
é = option, letter "e" and then the letter you want that accent on
è = option plus ` and then the letter you want that accent on
¿ = option, shift and ?
ñ = option and letter n twice
¡ = option and ! key
ü = option and u
î = option and "i" twice
ç = option and "c"
Ç = option, shift and "c"
œ = option and "q"
Œ = option, shift and "q"
€ = option, shift and 2
I'm glad I use my MAC!
