A note for all French learners (including me): how to type the French accents
First step, go to "start" -> "control panel" -> "regional and language options" -> "languages" -> "details" -> "add" -> choose French -> "ok"
(The following keystrokes are those on an English keyboard.)
é = /
É = ?
àèìòù = ' + aeiou
ÀÈÌÒÙ = ' + shift + aeiou
âêîôû = [ + aeiou
ÂÊÎÔÛ = [ + shift + aeiou
ç = ] + c
Ç = ] + shift + c
äëïöü = } + aeiou
ÄËÏÖÜ = } + shift + aeiou
Other punctuations that are different (the ones not listed here are the same on both English and French keyboards):
French keyboard = English keyboard
