How do i do the special letters??

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I have the italian keyboard...

How how do i do "enie" .. (the n with the wave above)???

And how do i do the other special letters??

The only i remember is

ã = alt + n then a

how do i do (n with the same line above)?

and a and o with two dots above?

And when i modify a page with bbeadit lite and save it as html it always gives me ugly letters instead of è,ò,Ã*,ù,ì,é...

What do i need to put in the html to have those as i want?

If i use the same letters writing the file with the notepad of Windows i have no problem.

Would it be the note in the beginning that it's not of windows keyboard..??

How do i resolve that in html??

Just need to write something in Spanish and Portuguese and I don't want to go and chang my system lang or keyboard only for that...

Thanx for anyone who knows

    Almost, but not quite

    It's called Key Caps.

    boy, I said "Keyboard Application", and that wasn't the exact name for it, and you knew it. If you want to flame, you can PM me.

    Mulatta, about the HTML: to ensure proper rendering in ALL browsers on ALL platforms, all characters that do not belong to the ASCII-set, have a special code, which you have to put in your html. These special codes always start with the & sign, and end with a semi-colon ; . Between them, you have mnemotechnic 'character codes', like for the 'n with the wave above', you need the code (between the delimiters I told): ntilde (tilde being what it's actually called in Spanish).

    Now, the codes, I have put for you on my fairly empty site, click <a href=""; target="_blank">here</a>.

    Two remarks still:

    1) if you save it in, for example, Appleworks, as HTML, Appleworks translates any special character into its HTML-code.

    2) you should try the shareware utility PopChar. It puts a small clickable thingy on your desktop where you can immediately access all characters available. I have been using it since I was, like, fourteen, and I am not fourteen anymore.

    Hope this helps.

    It's quite simple...

    Press the "Apple" key and the key with "` and ~" on it at the same time. Then press "N" and you will have an "ñ".

    This will also work for placing an accent over letter like E and I as well.
