Typing Accent Marks
 
   
 
You may use the following combinations of keystrokes to produce foreign language characters in word documents. If you want to type é, here is how it works:

On a PC, first, make sure Num Lock is on. Press and hold the ALT key down while you key in the numbers 130 using the number pad on the right side of the keyboard.

On a MAC, hold the first two keys down simultaneously, release, and then type the letter you wish to be accented. For é, hold the ‘OPTION’, and the é keys down simultaneously release and then type e.
