Use an extended Swiss French keyboard template
Authored by: gshenaut on Sep 29, '05 04:45:32PM
You might be interested in trying out the standard "US Extended" keyboard. It is similar, but more limited. It does macrons with opt-a to produce, for example, ō ; it does the little circle with opt-k, å ; and it does the slashed o with opt-o, ø. It also does all the European characters plus a few additional punctuation marks. Compared to the extended Swiss-French keyboard in the hint, it is more limited in the scope of the little o—only vowels (including y & w) can be so marked. There is no automatic Greek mode, and the only slashed character is ø. Like extended Swiss-French, it can produce brazillions of accented characters, including ĝ, ǧ, and ğ.

The easiest way to explore it is to use the "Keyboard Viewer".

By the way, it appears that if you want to see the characters instead of hex codes in maxosx hints, you need to enable "HTML formatted" mode.
