Bernard, I can type those characters and others. I use Windows XP. I have English (United States)- United Stated Internation as my language and the English United States - International as my default keyboard. (This is done, I think, through Control Panel|Regional and Language Options). To type . I merely press ~ first, then a. This keyboard layout allows me to type vowels with dieresis: , , etc., inverted interrogation marks and other useful characters. The only adjustment you will have to make is with quotation marks and single quotation marks. They are used for the diacritical marks, so if you want them as quotation marks, you have to press the space bar if the next character is a vowel. Hence, to type "I came," you will have to press: " [space] I came". Otherwise, you will get came,"

Your operating system should have a character map under accessories. If not, it is an optional Windows component under accessories on every Microsoft operating system since Windows 3.0

It will show you the character and tell you the keystroke sequence for it.
