Adding Accented Characters to your Text
If using Windows, you can add accented characters during data entry by making use of your ALT key and the numeric key pads located down the right side of your keyboard. Using the numbers along the top row of your normal key pads will not work; you must use the numeric key pads.
Refer to the following link for more information on how to do this as well as information on the various codes to input for French accents/characters: http://www.alt-codes.net/
If using a Mac: http://symbolcodes.tlt.psu.edu/accents/codemac.html
CIOC supports characters from the UTF-8 character set.
More information about inserting accents is available at http://french.about.com/od/writing/ss/typeaccents.htm
