    How can I add accents on French words in my hubs?

    There's a number of words of French origin that we use in English, such as cafe, matinee, nee, resume, etc. I would like to use them sometimes in my hubs but don't know how I can add the acute or grave accents.

    For acute accents:
    Use the Alt Gr key along with the required letter.
    é is Alt Gr + the letter e
    É is shift key + Alt Gr + e

    For Grave accents, you need the character `, which is on the key to the left of the number 1
    `e is ` followed by e

    Do a Google search on the word, scroll down a bit, find a version that has the accent mark and copy past it. I am constantly doing this for the term Déjà vu. This works for any type of symbol that you may want to add, like a copyright mark (©) or a degree symbol (º).
