    ► Clickable accents
    When you post using advanced or preview mode (not Quick Reply), you will see a list of accented characters at the top right side of the reply window. Click the [+] sign to display accented capitals. Click an accented letter to insert it in your post.


    ► Key codes

    Mac OS, Linux
    For the Mac key code list, click here.
    For the Linux key code list, click here.

    Windows
    The most common letters appear below. For the complete list, click here.
    Ensure the number lock is on. Hold down the ALT key and enter the numbers on the numeric keypad.
    Laptops: the numeric keypad is usually activated by the Function key. It transforms J,K,L into 1,2,3, etc.

    À = Alt + 0192 .... É = ALT + 144 .... Î = ALT + 0206 .... ô = ALT + 147 .... ù = ALT + 151 .... Ç = ALT + 128
    à = ALT + 133 .... Ê = ALT + 0202.... î = ALT + 140 .._.. œ = ALT + 0156... û = ALT + 150 .... ç = ALT + 135
    â = ALT + 131 .... é = ALT + 130..._. ï = ALT + 139
    æ = ALT + 145 _.. è = ALT + 138
    ........................ ê = ALT + 136.
    ........................ ë = ALT + 137


    ► Alternate Keyboard Layout

    Mac OS : US Extended keyboard, French Keyboard
    Details here. See also the Apple website here; or search on keyboard layout or international keyboard.

    Windows: US-International Keyboard
    ' + e/c → é/ç
    ` + a/e/u → à/è/ù
    ^ + a/e/i/o/u → â/ê/î/ô/û
    " + e/i/u → ë/ï/ü
    For capital letters hold SHIFT while pressing the letter you want to accent.

    You must enable the US-International keyboard for these shortcuts to work. A complete list of symbols and an installation guide is located here. Note that you can also use these instructions to enable the French keyboard, or any keyboard.
    Stolen and modified from the Spanish forum, thanks leo.


    ► On-screen keyboards
    Another very easy way to type French accented letters is to open an on-screen keyboard site in a side window:

    http://french.typeit.org/
    Type accents here and copy/paste them into your post. In spite of the site's statements, it works for Mac users too.

    http://lexilogos.com/clavier/francais.htm
    This site allows you to type directly in the text window and insert accents with a mouse click.
    Use copy/paste to tranfer your accented text into your post. Note that many keyboards are available besides French.

    http://dawn.thot.net/cd/3.html
    This is not an on-screen keyboard, but it has more information about typing accents.
    Thanks to damz.
