Inserting "special characters" for Español [Spanish] and Français
[French] is easy if you have a Unicode font or a good inclusive one that
has the needed characters when viewed with the Insert Special Character
option.  I have done that myself for a few things.

When typing European Languages, as well as the LibO option of Insert Special
Characters you can also define the Keyboard as extended. (details will
differ depending on your operating system). This allows you to type French,
German characters directly (áéîçßýð) and the € (euro) sign and not
forgetting «», the French quotation marks.  In Europe the level 3 key is
called Alt Gr but I believe that many America keyboards label it simply as
the Alt key on the right of the keyboard. 

In Europe, keyboards default to extended, but this is not the case in
America.. Peter
