Re: accenting letters
Although all who have mentioned that accented characters are indeed separate characters with separate character codes, and that these can be inserted using the ALT+ unicode method, there are programs, MS-Word being one, where you can get these by entering "the accent mark sequence," usually CTRL+ the accent mark you want, BEFORE typing the character upon which you want that accent placed.
