      The etc. means: õ. Indeed, as you can see in Key Caps, the ˜ dead key applies only when you next type a, n or o. or the corresponding capitals. Not a problem for Portuguese, but what the OP wanted was ĩ and ũ, and that *is* a problem.

      It was possible to edit the dead-key maps in ResEdit, but the characters would still appear only if they existed in the font.

      cheers,
