A macro to facilitate the use of accented and special characters or symbols.

It works in OpenOffice Writer so is available for all text documents. It’s indispensable if you write in more than one language, and invaluable even if you work only in English (as long as you would like to be able to write résumé or Götterdämmerung or Łódź or use «» or ± or °C in your work without struggling to insert the non-English characters).

There are currently around 180 characters available through a single shortcut key, covering most European languages using a Latin alphabet, and including such oddities as the Turkish dotless ı and the Spanish upside down question mark ¿ and the German double-s ß and the Icelandic thorn Þ and so on. The latest version also includes most upper and lower case Greek letters, and some common mathematical symbols.
