accent codes notes


In order to use the accent codes on a PC, you will need to hold down the ALT button and use the key pad numbers on the right side of the keyboard. *This may not work with every computer...if you chose to use the accents, make sure to proofread your document before turning it in! If after trying to use the accent marks they don't work, it is not an excuse not to have them on your paper--you can ALWAYS write them in using a black pen.

-ALT 160 -ALT 164

-ALT 130 -ALT 168

-ALT 161 -ALT 173

-ALT 162 -ALT 174

-ALT 163


In order to use accent codes on a Mac, you will need to hold down the Option key, and while holding it down, type the letter e; then release those keys and type the letter that you want the

accent to appear on:

= Opt + e, then a

= Opt + e, then e

= Opt + e, then i

= Opt + e, then o

= Opt + e, then u

For the , hold down the Option key while you type the n; release and type n again.

= Opt + n, then n

To place the diaeresis over the u, hold down the Option key while pressing the u key; release

and type u again.

= Opt + u, then u

The inverted punctuation marks are achieved as follows:

= Opt + 1

Opt + shift + ?


Copy/paste these if your keyboard will not let you type them:
