I'm assuming PCs have similar steps.
Thanks. I just got it figured out, with the help of Ask About . com
I'm on a PC using XP and I had to change a couple settings in my control panel/languages to say United States International. And in my case you hold down the right alt button. So I can type Molé and Jalapeño all my heart desires
I don't know why it just doesn't come set up that way. It doesn't appear to affect anything else. And that was always a peeve of mine not being able to spell them correctly. You can also hold down shift + alt and type a number code, but you can only use the keypad that way and my laptop doesn't have a keypad.
Interesting things you find out about these computers...
