    Hi everyone. I was just wondering what key combinations on my PowerBook G4 keyboard are to get like the accents on letters in French etc... At school we use windows and the combinations are things like: alt + 130. Anything like that on Mac?

    acute accent = alt+e (then type the letter you want beneath it) e.g é
    grave accent = alt+` (") e.g è
    circumflex = alt+i (") e.g ê
    two dots accent :eek: = alt+u (") e.g ë
    squiggly line accent lol = alt+n (") e.g ñ

    And, this is kinda unrelated but you can't forget shift+alt+k to get 

    and don't forget opt-c for ç :)

    it's all much easier than remembering Unicode: Alt+0233 for é, etc.
