This only works if you use Windows, though, and not all of us use Windows (nor do we want to). In fact I spent most of my time on the list with a text-only terminal. I have a directory full of little files, each with one accented letter and called things like "e-acute", to insert as needed. These days, I use the KDE character picker (but it doesn't have a euro sign; I copied it from someone's mail once and have since misplaced it) Irina -- --------------------------------------------------------------------- By my troth, we that have good wits have much to answer for.
