On a mac with an English keyboard, it is option+n, followed by "n." Can't help with a PC.

How about portuguese characters on mac. I know that in Google Chrome, when I hold for 2 secs, for example "a", the popup with accents will appear, but its too slow. Someone knows how to configure it to type faster ?

On a mac:
Option-"e" then a vowel produces é í ó á ú.
Option "i" then a vowel puts a circonflex on things î ê ô û â.
Option-` then a vowel puts that accent on àèìòù Option-u makes an umlaut ü ï ö ë ä

Thanks, it works. I just realised that I need to switch my keyboard settings to U.S. International. Here are your shortcuts as well:
