Hear ye! Hear ye!
If you have a Win7+ Operating system, you can easily install the danish keyboard layout.
Now, with this keyboard you must do the following to put the accent on ANY character. I repeat, ANYTHING.
There are a few keys near ÆØÅ that do not do anything when pressed, but if you press space afterwards you'll get
The key to the right of å directly (normal, shift and alt): ¨ , ^ , ~
Looks like: ä , â and ã
The key to the right of + directly (normal, shift and alt): ´ , ` , |
looks like: é, è, |
You can use these to type ALMOST any character in the derivatives of the latin alphabet, except for the double accent. It's on the keyboard, because I used it before.. but I forgot how to do it.
This also works on Ubuntu operating systems. Current O.S of mine is 8.1 so it WILL work with it.
On a Macintosh computer, you can press "alt" and "e" at the same time, then the tilde you're looking for will pop up in yellow. Then, press whatever vowel you want to accent (in this case, "e"). For any other operating system, I have no clue. Windows likes to be especially difficult with modified characters.
