in Spanish words like 'señor' (which your browser will possibly show
with the symbol !), sometimes called the 'tilde operator' as it has a
Boolean function in some formulae.
In order to tell you the 'key combination' I would need to know the
platform you are using - Macintosh doesn't have this problem so guess
it's some kind of Windows ?.
Anyway, the ascii code is Char 126 and in HTML either &126 or ~,
depending on what version of HTML you are using.
Hope this helps

- Dear Mary
On your Spanish keyboard, with number lock switched off, press the left Alt
key and (keeping it depressed) type 126 on the numeric keyboard. Release
the Alt key and you should have a "merry hyphen".
