Writing umlauts on this forum - alt codes won't work.
Is there an easy way to write umlauts here? I'd usually use alt-codes but for the life of me I can't get them to work on this computer! :(
Have figured it out, for any one else using an ACER laptop keyboard - you need to switch on numlock (fn key + F11) then use the numbers on the letters keypad (i.e o=6, k=2), rather than on the number row. It's a massive bind though so I'll probably stick with the extra 'e' instead!
