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

RE: Computer accents for French

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

aides-moi, s'il te plait

I tried LA foret...

typed in "for" hit number lock and 136... didn't work.

Am I "thick"?

Reponds seulement quand tu as le temps...

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!
