Ever wonder how to apply accent marks over your letters? It's very simple! The accent marks are called "fadas".
FOR WINDOWS: You hold down your "alt" key and from the numeric keypad on your key board, key in the numbers following each corresponding letter shown below. After keying in the required numbers, release the alt key.
For example: á is created by pressing down the alt key on your keyboard, key in the numbers 0193, then release the alt key--viola!
FOR MACS: Hold down the "option" key, press the "e" key, release the "option" key, then press the desired vowel letter (a,e,i,o, or u) key. Most people get confused because to create the fada over "any" vowel, you must press the letter "e" key before you press the desired vowel key.
For example: to create an "ó": Hold down the "option" key at the bottom of the keyboard, press the letter "e" key, release the "option", press the letter "o" key and so forth for each vowel.
The great thing about fadas is that that they are cross-browser capable.
