some ideas to share:

For writing
Other than taking the easy way out of doing [vowel' ] to indicate an accent=20
there are two other ways to do this.
In word perfect there is an option under insert for multinational symbols,=20
you can get the letter you need there....
or cut and paste--Copy the word or letter off a page on line and paste as=20
needed.

For reading
I keep the following chart taped to the monitor to help me read:
=3DE9 =3D e
=3DE4 =3D a
=3DE1 =3D a
=3DFA =3D u
=3DC1 =3D a
=3DF6 =3D o
=3DF3 =3D o
=3D46 =3D F

I also have a list based on decoding letter symbols but it wouldn't transmit=20
in email I think. here goes: only 2 came through
code=09=09=09=09=09=09=09=09=09=09
=09=09=09=09=09
=F7 =3D o=09=09=09=09=09=09=09=09=09=09
=09
=DF =3D a=09=09=09=09=09=09

I hope this helps.
