I need to start on my spanish homework, and I need to type accents and inverted question marks, but I can't figure it out. I'm using Microsoft Works.

Any help would be appreciated.

Accented vowels can be found by opening charmap in the Start/Run menu.

If you have Windows XP, do this (it's a slightly different procedure with previous Windows versions):

Control Panel -> Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options -> Regional and Language Options (or Add Other Languages) -> Languages tab -> Details -> Add....

And add US-International. Then, you can select that when you want to type in Spanish (or French, Portuguese, etc.). To get accents, press the apostrophe before the vowel; tilde before n for ñ; Right Alt-! or ? for inverted punctuation; Alt-, for ç (French and Portuguese); Right Alt-[ and ] for « and »; and " for diareses (like ü). For French, you can also use ^ before a vowel for the circumflex (ô). To get the punctuation instead of accents, etc., press Space after the punctuation.

¿No es muy fácil? Me encanta mucho el idioma español.

¡Buena suerte!

Not me - I'm normal. The voices in my head tell me so.

I'm considering learning French so that I can finally understand the voices in mine. :wink:

I always did them by using the alt+(number) construction. Like, é is written by holding alt then hitting 0233. After using them all through high school, I have them memorized by now.

I'm normal. No you're not. Yes I am. No you're not.
