Speaking of blogging things so I can remember them…
I was working on reformatting my résumé a little bit today, and I wanted to change my MSN IM tag to reflect the fact. So I set it to "Resume" and went off to work. Of course, all that did was draw a smartass remark from Ian about me powering my brain back up after suspending it. :)
While we were chatting, I finally remembered the key sequence that would have let me type "résumé" instead of "resume". It's control-' followed by e. Similarly, control-` followed by a letter renders the other accent (although not for all letters). And control-~ a gives ã.
Two interesting things about this:
- Ian's keyboard gave reversed accents from mine for the same key sequences. But he's in the UK - maybe this has something to do with driving on the wrong side of the road. :)
- These key sequences don't work in all text controls. So far, from what I've tested, it works in Word and in MSN IM, but not in notepad, notepad2, nor InfoPath.
At any rate, I'm sure I could have found this on Google, but now I know where to look. Also, hopefully blogging this will remind me to make sure I put support for it into my TextEditor control.
