typing in Spanish?: Hi there my name is Sarah I am a new student to the Spanish Language. I just got a elmentary level Spanish class this semester at school and I heard from my teacher you can type in Microsoft Word in Spanish using certain types of codes.
Since I would like to use typing with some of my assignments in class I was wondering if any you guys could give me a list of commands one can use in Word to type in Spanish.Any help would be very apricated thank you!

Spanish characters: I know these codes, you get them by keeping the "ALT" key (next to your left windows key) pressed while typing a number code on the num pad (the number keys on the right of the keyboard)... as for the accents - they should be accessible on an International US keyboard...

alt+164 > ñ
alt+165 > Ñ

for the accents you can use your international us keyboard ( if you dont have one, install it as described here: http://www.cs.umu.se/~hegner/Misc/Windowskb/windowsse2.html - you can compare the layouts here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keyboard_layout#US )

Yeah sorry about that, I ment to mention if this had been brought up before if you could direct me that link. It just slipped my mind, since at the time I was helping my father clear out his garage. So I was trying to two things all at once. Again sorry about double posting truly did not mean to. But thank you very much for the help very much apricate it!
