Ahoy Tony

I use both options in MS Word, MS Excel & MS Outlook!

Touch wood, they haven't let me down yet.

Ahoy Sean, 
 
Surely someone is almost always going to! 
 
Yes I started the thread and it works for me what Flor wrote for OE. 
 
What exactly Sean do you use that in? 
 
Say programme, version and the like? 
 
Just a question! 
 
Tony !

        Well, seán:
        
        It works with some letters for me, in Microsoft Word; but not all.
If I 
        use it when I type the Irish word tá, it works: but if I then use it
to 
        type sé or sí, I get se or si respectively.  If I use it to type the

        word í or é, it works.  So while it may work werll for you, it won't

        work for all.  To be honest, it's also not the handiest key
combination. 
        Might as well use that alt-gr key (the name for the joint alt-ctrl
key 
        on european keyboard layouts) right next the spacebar.

        Ahoy Eleanor
        
        That is the combination I use and no one has complained yet!

        Not for me it doesn't work Sean, I have tried in Word.  However if I

        press
        the right Alt followed by a vowel I get the French acute sign.  Now
is 
        that
        the same sign as the fodda?  I have a niece whose name is  órnagh
with 
        the
        accent or fodda on the O.  People can never work the name out and
find 
        it
        simpler and most irritating for her they just call her Orla!
