PostSubject: Extended-ASCII Character Set   Thu Dec 01, 2016 8:20 pm

I used to have a chart next to my Windows keyboard with all the alt+number combinations necessary to make non-English characters:

  • à, á, â, ä, æ, ã, å, ā
  • ç, ć, č
  • è, é, ê, ë, ē, ė, ę
  • î, ï, í, ī, į, ì
  • ł
  • ñ, ń (sadly no 'n' with umlauts, Spinal Tap fans...)
  • ô, ö, ò, ó, œ, ø, ō, õ
  • ß, ś, š
  • û, ü, ù, ú, ū
  • ÿ
  • ž, ź, ż
  • ¿
  • £
  • ¥

I've had this computer for a year & a half now and just recently discovered how easy it is to do these characters -- just hold down the letter on the keyboard for 1/2 second and the optional variants appear.  Slick!  Handy for documenting the müšíç i listen to.

Extended ASCII characters (they are not non-ASCII) are not easy to type on Windows machines unless you remember the character number. or install a different keyboard layout.

I once installed the Czech character set to a co-worker's keyboard. Much hilarity ensued.
