Half of the Mac's character set can't be found on the keyboard. Here's how to create the umlaut-accented (¨) characters used in some Latin-based languages. This works for äÄ, ëË, ïÏ, öÖ, üÜ and ÿ'.
Press Option + u, and then press the letter you want accented.
For upper case, press Option + u, and then press Shift + the letter you want accented.
Many of these accented ("high ASCII") characters are not compatible with e-mail.
