Well, if you switch your keyboard setup in Windows to English (UK), then it should work like mine does :-) And I don't think there's any downside is there? There's no US English that you can type with your US English keyboard... is there? :)[/quo]
I thought about doing what you suggest, but then I read a description of the differences between the UK English and the US English keyboards in Wikipedia, complete with diagrams. From what I can tell, there are some keys that change position between the UK and US versions. These include @, #, ", ~. Since I'm a pretty fast typist, I think I'd find it frustrating to make these changes. So I think I'll simply keep my US keyboard and continue to use the ALT + 4 method. I've memorized all the codes that I use a lot, like those to make á. é, í, ó, ú, ñ, ¿. and ¡, as well as ç and ü. It's also useful for making lots of other symbols as well, such as ¶, €, £, and ©. Thanks, however, for the suggestion.
