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.

See:  

Keyboard shortcuts to add language accent marks in Word

or any of a number of the tutorials returned by: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=accented+characters+MS-Word 

Word processors (and, maybe, office suite programs in general) make this somewhat easier via "accent followed by character" technique than many other types of programs do, and where the ALT+ unicode is required.
