Thumbs up Type accents and other IDN characters in a US Keyboard

To type accents and other IDN characters in a US Keyboard, change your Keyboard Layout in <control panel>, <change keyboards and other input methods>, <change keyboards> and in the "keyboard" select "United States International"

To type the special punctuation characters, you need to hold down on the <Alt Right> key while you strike the appropriate punctuation mark. For example:
¡ = <Alt Right> (hold down) + 1
² = <Alt Right> (hold down) + 2
³ = <Alt Right> (hold down) + 3
¤ = <Alt Right> (hold down) + 4
€ = <Alt Right> (hold down) + 5
á = <Alt Right> (hold down) + a [or strike the single apostrophe (') key and a]
é = <Alt Right> (hold down) + e [or strike the single apostrophe (') key and e]
í = <Alt Right> (hold down) + i [or strike the single apostrophe (') key and i]
ó = <Alt Right> (hold down) + o [or strike the single apostrophe (') key and o]
ú = <Alt Right> (hold down) + u [or strike the single apostrophe (') key and u]
ñ = <Alt Right> (hold down) + n [or strike the single apostrophe (') key and n]
Ñ = <Alt Right> <Shift> (hold down) + n [or strike the single apostrophe (') key and <Shift> n]
µ = <Alt Right> (hold down) + m [or strike the single apostrophe (') key and m]
® = <Alt Right> (hold down) + r [or strike the single apostrophe (') key and r]
© = <Alt Right> (hold down) + c [or strike the single apostrophe (') key and c]

For a complete diagram see this link, http://cnñ.com/keyboard.html

If you followed the above directions carefully, your keyboard will now react slightly differently than it did before. First of all, notice that if you strike the single apostrophe (') key, nothing happens. To type the single apostrophe now, you must strike the single apostrophe key and then strike the space bar. When you strike the spacebar, the apostrophe will appear.

The next thing to note is that the quotes (") key behaves the same way as the apostrophe key. You must first strike the quotes key and then strike the space bar in order to create the (") symbol. These two minor inconveniences are more than made up for by the ease with which you can now type the special characters.

To type the special characters, two keystrokes are required. To type the á, you need only strike the apostrophe key and then the letter a. The other characters are just as easy:

á = ' + a
é = ' + e
í = ' + i
ó = ' + o
ú = ' + u
ñ = ~ + n
ü = " + u

Alternatively you can just search Google for the Language Alphabet. Wikipedia normally does them. Then just cut and paste. You don't have to be a regular Geek to do this!
