I'll search for the key combinations for all umlauted letters.

Thus u-umlaut instead of being u with dots over it would be ue--that is u followed by e. It isn't correct, of course, but better than nothing??? ** To leave the list, click on the immediately-following link:- ** [mailto:guispeak-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx?subject=unsubscribe] ** If this link doesn't work then send a message to: ** guispeak-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx ** and in the Subject line type ** unsubscribe ** For other list commands such as vacation mode, click on the ** immediately-following link:- ** [mailto:guispeak-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx?subject=faq] ** or send a message, to ** guispeak-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with the Subject:- faq This Message has been scanned for viruses by McAfee Groupshield.
