Do you do that before or after you type the word?

Before each letter needing an accent. Try a few words. Told you it was slow and painful!

Thanks for the info Marie! I copied and pasted it into a word document so I could save it for future use.

Chelone, type in "for" then hold down the ALT key while typing 136. My num lock key is always on, so I don't have to worry about doing that.


Bonne chance!
