10.6: Type accented characters without the Option key
Authored by: pietervw on Mar 09, '10 08:22:35AM

I guess it all comes down to where you bought your MBP then. I am Dutch and have a Dutch physical keyboard, but I was really struggling with this for a while before I figured out how to enter them the fast way. I use Dutch, English and Spanish on a regular basis and I can assure you (just tried again) that on my keyboard, with the Dutch keyboard layout there is no single button I can press to get a little yellow character indicating that the next character I'll type will be accented.

You're right though about the Spanish/Portuguese layout: if I press [ in the Spanish layout I can immediately afterwards press that letter. However then I get an on a key that says ; and :, and most symbols are in different places.. So as I said in the hint itself, for me the US layout is brilliant but you have to see for yourself if it fits your needs.
