    Hi All, If you have Word by Microsoft, there is a way to program all the accented characters into a more user friendly setup. It really doesn t take that long.

      Hi All,

      If you have Word by Microsoft, there is a way to program
      all the accented characters into a more user friendly
      setup. It really doesn't take that long.
      What you do is go to the "Insert" tab and go to 'symbol'.
      This does require that you have the East European character
      set. You can then scroll down to the character you want
      like c^. Then click on the button "shortcut key". What I
      have done is assign "alt+c" to type that letter
      automatically. It turns that letter into something no more
      complicated than that of a capital C. Here is a complete
      list of my assignments:
      � Alt a
      � Alt q
      � Alt c
      � Alt d
      � Alt e
      � Alt j
      � Alt l
      � Alt �
      � Alt n
      � Alt o
      � Alt [
      � Alt r
      � Alt s
      � Alt t
      � Alt u
      � Alt y
      You may notice that some combinations are already taken,
      but they are the minority. Once you get used to it, it's
      like writing in english. For letter with more than one
      diakritic type I tried to group the letter as close or
      logically together.
      I hope this is of use to others.

      Joe
