10.6: Type accented characters without the Option key
Authored by: xplora on Mar 07, '10 10:40:29AM

This is all about keyboard mappings, and doesn't work in New Zealand since the Maori (flat line above character, like the tilde but flat) accent does not exist as a normal type-able character, in fact neither does some of the other accents.

One other problem is using the quote (") character will cause problems with actually trying to insert quotes.

In the end the option key trick is actually better since you just treat it like a shift key.
