Even though I write in English, I've often needed to type a name or word in
French, German or Spanish, using letters with accents such as à, é, ü or ñ.
But they aren't on my English keyboard. So many times I had to use e'
when what I really wanted was the accented é. There are
many words in common usage that require these accents: résumé,
tête-à-tête, à la carte....
Here's How You Can Make Keyboard Symbols with the "Alt" Key
...and Unicode and HTML numeric
code formats, too!
Keyboard symbols work best with common text fonts: Arial,
Courier New and Times New Roman.

Using the numeric keypad (NumLock on), hold down the Alt Key and press

Type capital letter U, the plus sign (+) and the numbers and letters as
shown, in succession. Then hold down the Alt Key and press letter x.
