Compose Key Tables

These tables show the Compose-Key sequences that can be used for entering accented letters and other special characters when your keyboard does not have keys for them and your keyboard driver does not supply its own input method.

Legend:

  O = The two keys must be pressed in the Order given.
  C = Alphabetic Case matters.

No "O" means the keys may be pressed in either order; no "C" means letter keys can be entered in either upper or lower case.
