10.6: Type accented characters without the Option key
Authored by: roo.bookaroo on Mar 09, '10 06:27:43AM

Good hint.
My simple but stupid method was to write my text on my US keyboard, in American, then switch the keyboard to the French keyboard and go back and replace each vowel with its accented French equivalent from the French keyboard.

What the hint-giver forgot to mention is the ^ accent. It will work in the same way, but to get the ^ you have to use the shift key then type the vowel, same as for the umlaut in .
The ^ is even more difficult to get with the French keyboard.
