N

I don't have a key on my keyboard ( I'm using a laptop) for the Spanish n with the line over the top. Does anybody know how to do that?

If you're on mac, you hold 'alt' and press 'n'. Then when you press 'n' again it will have the tilde on top of it. Don't know about Windows though.

If you want you can install a keyboard layout that will let you enter ñ by typing ~n or Right Alt + n. It's called US International layout. Instructions for Windows 7:

Or for Windows 8:

More information on how to use the layout here:

On a PC you may be able to hold down the ALT key while entering the digits 165 for an uppercase Ñ and 164 for a lowercase ñ as I've done in this response.
