10.6: Type accented characters without the Option key
Authored by: Angostura on Mar 06, '10 01:27:31AM

Alternatively, if you are in Snow Leopard, you can set up global text substitutions in the Language > Text Pref Pane to map any combination of characters onto whatever character you would like.

10.6: Type accented characters without the Option key
Authored by: pietervw on Mar 09, '10 08:26:39AM

I have tried these global text substitutions a while ago as well, but they are not as useful as the right keyboard layout. If I set up a rule that said that any ' I typed followed by an 'a' should be replaced with , it only did so if I also typed a space afterwards. So then to type an accented letter I should type the keysequence previously defined, then space, then backspace and then I could continue typing the word. Not ideal.
