The symbols listed below are easy for occasional use whether for letter writing and invitations, business and academic documents, etc. The symbols are made by pressing and holding one of the ALT keys, then typing the indicated numbers. You must use the numeric keypad on the right side of your keyboard (check that Num Lock is on) or the "hidden" keypad on a laptop computer. For example: ALT + 0200 = È.  The letter appears after the Alt key is released. The ALT key methods are shown in the charts below. The International English Keyboard is an easier way for those who use many European accent marks fairly often.

The four digit combinations can also be found in Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Character Map; clicking on a letter shows the Alt keystrokes in the lower right of the Character Map window and its name in the lower left (see example). Help is available in Start/Help (or Help and Support in Win XP) - then type character map. The Windows operating system seems to accept either the three or four digit system.

If you prefer, you may be able to hi-lite, copy, and paste the accented letter (not the code) from below into your work. The charts are designed to be printed and displayed near a personal, office, or school computer. Browsers usually let you print a selected part of the page.
