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).
Here are the links for codes for Spanish and French words:
