As in how it appears in Altar's name. I have my keyboard set to English, UK and all I can do is accents.

Anyone help me?

Thanks. But I'm a bit thick and have no idea what that means

It means, that if you press and hold ALT and then type that number, you make that letter --> ALT+0239 = http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

For more letters and stuff like that -> Start menu -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Character map.

Or as shown on this little image I just made http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I just type in "& i u m l ;" (without quotes or spaces) It's faster than any other method, because it does not require you to move your hands much, just your fingers.

Does that work in things like Open Office as well though?

If it has an auto-replace/auto-fix feature, you can set it up to work.

Cool but I've gotten used to alt0239 already

To each their own. I prefer &?uml; as it's faster and is used for html coding. Though alt+0239 is more universal.

Ja, that's why I'm using it. Thanks, everyone, for all your help

Have you tried using the numbers on the numpad? The ones at the top of the keypad don't seem to work for it
