Re: [Evolution] Key Sequences for special ascii characters...

Being in the U.S, I assume you're using a standard U.S. keyboard.
Reconfigure it to U.S. international keyboard. (If you use Mandrake, the
Control Center can do this, otherwise check your distro's tools.) The
U.S. international keyboard gives you dead keys which allow you to
produce letters with diacritical marks. Press first the dead key,
release it, then the base letter, to produce the final letter you want.
For example:

' (apostrophe) + e = é
" (quotation mark) + u = ü

It's easier to use than it is to describe, and works the same way that
Spanish and French keyboards do. Try it and you'll never go back to
alt-164 again.

It's not an Evolution specific solution, which means that it works
equally well in your favorite word processor, spreadsheet, newsreader...
even a console.

Does Evo have the ability to print special ascii characters like the
umlaut?  If so what is the key sequence to make it print in a plain text
email?  I seem to remember there being some sort of alt-<key> in the MS
Office products to produce this.
