Hello listers,

Can somebody please tell me how to get Spanish accent marks in Word 2000? I
tried setting tools/language to Spanish in Word 2000, and I even set up the
keyboard to Spanish in the control panel, but what modifier keys do I use to
generate, for example, an n with a tilde (~) over it?

Somebody posted a message saying you could go into the
insert/symbols/special characters in MS Word, and insert Spanish accent
marks, but I found no such marks. The only accent mark I've been able to
produce is the e-acute mark, by typing control + apostrophe, followed by the
letter e.

I understand that JFW version 5.0 uses the Insert + 4 combination to
generate a pick list of special foreign language characters, but I'm not
using that version of JFW. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
