The umlaut looks the same, but it's a different mark: it is an accent, whereas the diaeresis is (as you describe) also a diacritic but not an accent. Brian BarkerFor those who are interested, it's possible to generate the various special characters by using the U.S. International keyboard. With it, you can use the right Alt key to create those characters, such as ü, á, , £, € etc. The left Alt key works as usual.Pardon my ignorance, but could you describe how that works or where one would find out that information? Thanks.http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/goglobal/bb964658.aspx or a google search with e.g. "alt numpad for symbols"
I should have thought of that. Thanks!
