Getting those little marks above letters [Acute Accent Marks]

Posted on Monday, January 19, 2009 in General Tips

So what letters are we talkin’ about?

Á á É é Í í Ó ó Ú ú Ý ý (ex: resumé)

How do we make these letters?

For MAC users just hold down the Opt key and type the letter! So simple.

Windows users have it a bit more difficult. To get these letters Hold down the ALT key and then type in the follow codes on the keypad (numbers on the right of the keyboard) to create the accent mark.

Hold down ALT and type the code for the accent you want:

  • 0193 (Á)
  • 0201 (É)
  • 0205 (Í)
  • 0211 (Ó)
  • 0218 (Ú)
  • 0221 (Ý)
  • 0209 (Ñ)
  • 0225 (á)
  • 0233 (é)
  • 0237 (í)
  • 0243 (ó)
  • 0250 (ú)
  • 0253 (ý)
  • 0214 (ñ)
  • 0153 (™)
  • 0169 (©)
  • 0174 (®)
  • 26 (→)
  • 27 (←)
  • 1 (☺)
  • 3 (♥)
  • 7 (•)
  • 9 (○)

Hope this helps out!
