ok a few people have been asking me so heres how i do it. all i do is press and hold the alt key. then on the number pad (where it looks like a caluculator to the right side of ur letters) press 9 then let go press 3 then let go and then press 6 and let go. now let go of alt and there u go. im sure there are other ways of doing it but thats the way i figured out when i was bored one day. it wont work if u use the numbers above ur letters. us the # pad.

¡ ALT-168 will achieve the same result !

In Spain (don't know if this is the case in other Spanish-speaking countries) exclamation marks and question marks are put upside down at the beginning of the sentence and repeated normally at the end. That's why they're in the ASCII-tables.

The English language is remarkably free from special signs that so many other languages (French, German to name just two) have.

BTW ¡ is ALT-173

In the preview screen and this screen ¿ and ¡ are at the same position as the other letters, but they should sit a little below the rest (try it in the editing-screen and you will see what I mean).

My question, how do you put the little things above a letter, like you have shown, was just thinking about this early today.

that it only produces an upside question mark in Netscape? To other browsers, it's just some "wacked out" character ... looks like Chinese. I was wondering what all the goofy Chinese symbols were from /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

I have I.E. and I see it as a question Mark.

With Windows 98 and later versions, it is possible to put, e.g. ^, above a vowel by typing ^ followed by the vowel. After typing ^, nothing will appear on the screen yet, if followed by e, ê will be displayed.
This option can be disabled. For English this option may already be disabled by default because this language doesn't use these symbols.

For DOS and ealier versions of Windows, or if the option described above is disabled, you have to use a combination of ALT-xxx. E.g., ALT-137 is ë.

In Word there is a list of special symbols and these contain ë and other symbols, like Greek letters.
