    The Alt-x trick Murray mentioned is specific to MS Office applications or to applications that use the RichEdit control. The ctrl-~ + n trick is also specific to MS Office products and RichEdit.

    oh, duh, not the function key, that makes more sense.

    Well I tried that here in FF, and did not work, but did in Wordpad, so I guess it's another MS or Windows situation, right?

    Well that is better than before, and it led me to find out much more about Unicode. So thanks again!

    Type F1 alt+x, where F1 means the letter F key followed by the 1 key, not Function key 1. U+00F1 is the Unicode value of ñ. In general to type in a character by its Unicode value, type in the hex value and then alt+x. E.g., to type in math italic a, type 1D44E alt+x , which gives 𝑎.
