Hi all,

I am currently facing a really annoying problem.

I'm taking Spanish 003 this semester, and most of our work is done online or must be typed. I'm used to using the ALT+#### codes on my desktop PC, but this laptop keyboard is a completely different animal, and it's really wearing on my nerves.

The first problem is that if I use Fn+Alt to achieve the same thing with the number pad, it'll do the functions for both the accented character and the arrow key. For instance, if I want to type out the word for 'lesson', it appears as 'leccói', and in any browser, it'll completely screw things up because Alt+1 on the number pad with the num lock off is the left arrow key, and that'll back it up a page. Switching the number lock on and off is not practical, since that's like 8 keystrokes per accented character.

Anyone know a freeware program that'll aid in the input of accented characters?

Thanks Papermoon.

I installed the United States-International keyboard IME, and it works pretty well for what I need it for. If it ever goes bad on me, I'll definitely consider that one.
