Where is the dead-key to type before the letter defined. Even though I
switch to the
US-INTERNATIONAL keyboard CHARMAP still is listing the ALT+xxxx codes not
the two Key Combo. I'm a Mac Type and used to getting via Option-' + e
not ALT+0233 [from keypad)(other acutes are Option-' and the letter while
other Option-keys get the other accents or in the case of
Option-c ). I know that Windows is supposed to have a similar two-key
method but all I can find is the ALT method - I'd rather learn the Windows
dead keys so I can still touch type like I do on my Mac at home.
