I use the es-Spanish keyboard layout. I went to the MS site that I told you about. The English Intl. is complicated. When I toggle from US to es, the dead keys all come into play. The ' becomes a dead key so that the sequence 'e produces é and so on. The ; becomes the ñÑ and etc. I use that layout in Kword and in any Spanish words I use in email. I have never used OO. In the US Intl, the apostrophe, grave, the carrot, and double quotes are all dead keys. The rest you have to use the <alt-gr> key. The shift is also active on the <altp-gr>. I use the default qwerty US keyboard and toggle to es-Spanish and I get the Spanish characters when I type into anything except kde's konsole. If you can't see them, let me know. I can grab the popups tomorrow and save them on my web site. There is probably a copyright issue so I won't pass the URL on here. It isn't a 100% because the international layouts use the funny enter key and the shift keys are smaller. I don't know where to find those characters. I haven't mapped them.
