✍ FYI: Typing Foreign Characters with Ease

For Your Information...

If you have the need to type anything in a foreign language which has accents and other strange-looking characters, and you only have a US keyboard, your life used to be miserable. You used to have to do one of the following:

•ignore the special characters

•memorize unintuitive keyboard "shortcuts" such as Alt+0128

•go letter-hunting with the Character Map in Windows or Word

•install Windows keyboard layouts which have the nasty side effect of interfering with your ability to type normal letters

•buy and install third-party text input software click on pic to go to TypeIt website!

Now, through the miracles of Unicode and JavaScript, you can just navigate to this site, type whatever you need to type in a text box, and then paste it wherever you need it — into your word processor, e-mail message, etc. You can type foreign characters by clicking buttons or by pressing intuitive keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl+Letter) that don't require you to grow additional fingers and don't block normal letters. Try it out!
