Help my friends.How to get "" (e with acute accent ) in 2 different ways?
Hello Knowledgeable Friend,
I want to explain it using ONLY one example. On my Windows xp I can
type "" (e with acute accent ) in 2 different ways. One way is to
get the "French keyboard" and type 2 on the English keyboard: 2 then
reads .
I can also hold down my left Alt and type 130 on the right number
keys.It also gives without going to the "French keyboard"
My question is . Two of my friends can get the "French keyboard" and
type 2 to get , BUT although theirs is also Windows xp with tower
(not laptop) like mine they can't get holding down the left Alt
and typing 130 on the right .
Is there another way on some Windows xp to get without changing
into the "French keyboard"?
I am sure one of you knows the answer.
Thanking you in advance.
Urban

Reference books nowadays list these extended ASCII
codes with four digits, not three. Have your friends tried
keying Alt 0130 ?

This might depend on the application they're using.

I have Word (2002) and it does not allow you to type in using alt-130.
You have to go through the menu, using Insert -> Symbols.

Although I can use Notepad and most other text editors and type alt-130 to
display .

Urban, our daughter-in-law, Rene, likes the alternate, i.e., "reverse"
accent mark. Another lady I know uses "."

I can get "" either with Alt-130, OR with Alt-0233.

The other accent-mark-e, "" can be obtained with Alt-138 or Alt-0232 (as I
have done here).

Also to be considered is the particular character set used, special
character sets will yield something quite different.

You could put a shortcut to the Character Map in the quick start portion of
the Taskbar.

The Character Map is on the

Start
Programs
Accessories
System Tools

If it isn't there you may have to install it with the

Start
Settings
Control Panel
Add/Remove Programs
Add/Remove Windows Components
Accessories and Utilities

Click Accessories twice to see the Character Map listing.

Have you tried CTRL+'(Apostrophe) followed by e for in Word?

How about CTRL+`(Accent Grave) followed by e for in Word?

These are listed Under the "Type international characters" help topic
for Word '97 (Yes - It's old, but works as well as it ever did).

On Windows 2000, pressing the AltGr key and the e gives you in any text
program.
Don't know if that's the same for XP

I learned something totally new! It works in Word 2002, too.

To type accents in nearly all documents containing text, including Notepad,
Excel, Powerpoint, OpenOffice programs

Holding down the Alt key, type the numbers below on the numbered keypad
(ensure that the Num Lock light is lit up on your keyboard) (I'm not sure
how this works on a laptop which does not have a numbered keypad - I don't
own one)

German

0196

0214

0220



0228

0246

0252

0223



Italian

0224

0225

0232

0242



0200



French

0234

For Word, I type the letters unaccented (apart from the and follow them
with a ` or, when necessary, the (both on the key left of the 1 on the
keyboard) then I use a macro like the following one when I have finished the
document to find all those letter combinations and replace them with
accented letters:


'***Start of code
Sub GermanAccents()
'Indicate German accents by putting a `
'(left of the 1) after the letter
' this replaces them with real text

Dim MyFind() As String
Dim MyReplace() As String
Dim NoChars As Integer
'number of characters to replace
NoChars = 7
ReDim MyFind(NoChars)
ReDim MyReplace(NoChars)
'Switch off screen refresh to speed macro
Application.ScreenUpdating = False

MyFind(1) = "a`"
MyFind(2) = "u`"
MyFind(3) = "o`"
MyFind(4) = "s`"
MyFind(5) = "A`"
MyFind(6) = "U`"
MyFind(7) = "O`"

MyReplace(1) = ChrW(228)
MyReplace(2) = ChrW(252)
MyReplace(3) = ChrW(246)
MyReplace(4) = ChrW(223)
MyReplace(5) = ChrW(196)
MyReplace(6) = ChrW(220)
MyReplace(7) = ChrW(214)

For a = 1 To NoChars
Selection.Find.ClearFormatting
Selection.Find.Replacement.ClearFormatting
With Selection.Find
.Text = MyFind(a)
.Replacement.Text = MyReplace(a)
.Forward = True
.Wrap = wdFindContinue
.Format = False
.MatchCase = False
.MatchWholeWord = False
.MatchWildcards = False
.MatchSoundsLike = False
.MatchAllWordForms = False
End With
Selection.Find.Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll
Next a
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
'***End of Code

Although what you suggest works, of course, here's what I think is a
much better, easier-to-use solution.

I use a little freeware background program called AllChars. This lets
me (in all applications) type many common special characters (many of
these are used in other languages) by pressing the ctrl key followed
by a two character mnemonic combination.

For example, for the two characters are ~ and n. For it's c and ,
For it's u and "
