    So

    = Alt + 0196
    = Alt + 0203
    = Alt + 0207
    = Alt + 0214
    = Alt +0220
    = Alt + 0159

    = Alt + 0228
    = Alt + 0235
    = Alt + 0239
    = Alt + 0246
    = Alt + 0252<!-- / message --><!-- sig -->
    = Alt + 0255


    Hope this helps

    May I complement you sir on a very thorough answer - I never knew any of that - ta :D

    An alternative to holding down the ALT key and typing numbers is to have alternate keyboards available on your desk top. For example, I have US English, UK English and German (Umlauts) available. You can set up the additional keyboard by going into control panel on a PC. I don't know how it works on a MAC though.

    Claire, try holding down the button between control and the Apple key for Alt.

    Or, just discovered, go to Edit, click on Special Characters, and everything is listed there, accents, brackets, upside down question marks for Spanish, etc.
