    Try bringing up the Character map in OS X, by pressing Option + Command + T.

    ó via German keyboard, thus it should work with other keyboard and keyboard layouts as well, as long as the ´/` key is included:

    OPTION/Alt+E, then "o", at least for me as I tested a Dutch keyboard layout.

    Are you using Lion? Press and keep hold of O, then press the Number 8.

    Õ. BOOM!

    Go to System Preferences -> Keyboard

    Tick Show Keyboard & Character Viewers in menu bar

    From the Menu, select Show Keyboard Viewer, play with the option key and you will see how to obtain any character.

    For most of the non-spanish keyboards option key and e will with you the accent ´ then press the vowel you want to accentuate.


    option e then a = á
    option e then e = é
    option e then i = í
    option e then o = ó
    option e then u = ú

    option n then n = ñ

    It's 4, as Õ is not the same as Ó.

    Found it! It's shift+option+1 and then the character to insert characters like á ó and é.

    What keyboard layout do you have? SHIFT+OPTION+1 gives me this, when using the Dutch keyboard layout:

    option-u, letter gives äëïöüÿ.
    option-e, letter gives áéîôû.
    option-n, letter gives ãõñ
    option-i, letter gives âêîôû
    option-`, letter gives àèìòù.

    I Lion, keep your finger on the letter until a window with choices pops up.
