Go to: http://www.umass.edu/langctr/keyboardhelp.html which tells all
about the Alt codes (for PC), a few tips for Mac users; you can also change
your (PC) keyboard setting to US Intl. which enables you to type the accents
directly (the website tells you how). It makes single/double quote,
grave/tilde and shift-6 (^) into dead keys, just like on old typewriters.
Technology marches on.
Or just start playing around with Alt plus 4-digit numbers, from 0128 on up,
and make your own list. Most of the accented chars. are 0192-0222
(caps),and 0223-0255 (l.c.), but a few random ones have lower nos. (I don't
get anything above 0255).
As you probably know, in html you can use either e.g. "à" or
at least, I think so. There's a website about all this too, but I don't have
the URL handy.
