ASCII question
I was wondering how to make an o with two dots above it in ASCII. I've seen this in European languages. Can't remember which ones though.

The double dot is called an umlaut. I know that you definately find it in German and Swedish. It's possibilly in Dutch and other Germanic languages too.

For O with an umlaut in HTML, you can do &Ouml. Unicode: U+00D6.

Re: ASCII question
You could also activate the internationl keyboard:

http://tlt.its.psu.edu/suggestions/i...s/codeint.html
Quote:
1. Go to Start then Control Panels then Regional and Language Options. Follow the instructions for Activating the Language Bar
2. While in the Regional and Language Options control panel, click on the Languages tab, then the Details button.
3. Click the Add button and select English from the Input Language pull down menu.
4. Place a check in the Keyboard layout/IME box and select one of the following from the dropdown menu.
1. United State International = International
2. You can also select the U.K., Canadian or Dvorak keyboards from this menu.

See Detailed XP Instructions for complete instructions with screen capture images.
5. In the top dropdown menu, you have the option of selecting the international keyboard as the default keyboard for all Windows applications.
6. Click the OK buttons until you have exited the control panels - this will save the changes in your Profile.
7. To use the International keyboard, open any Windows application then make sure the Language Bar menu on te top is set to EN and that the secondary keyboard menu is set to United States International.
So if you type ' " ' and right after that a ' o ' it'll show up as an on screen.

I'm not sure how well that works when you post on the internet though. It might since I haven't tried. But using the ASCII or Unicode codes is ideal.

edit: never mind, it seems it does. I just can't remember the way to type in Greek anymore since I use a font. . .
