Hi there,Really nice job,There are many people searching about that now they will find enough sources by your tips,Also looking forward for more tips about that

This alt codes table is great, because I had a Sql Sort which sorted differently to vba when using a comparison operator mainly because of how umlauts etc were handled. I solved the problem by writing a replace function within the sort routine to substitue o for ö etc.

This fixed a bug in my code, thanks for the great work.

This blog is fantastic. Thats not really a really huge statement, but its all I could come up with after reading this.

Valuable information and excellent design you got here! I would like to thank you for sharing your thoughts and time into the stuff you post!

There is lot of information and they are very innovative and informative.

The list of letters with 'accents' does not include special letter accents for the Polish language such as the "e", "a", with subscript or tail under the letter, similar to a 'cedillia' under a "c" but not the same.
Is there a separate Alt code list for the Polish letters?

These are the codes for Word (they do not work in Notepad):
Ą alt+260, ą alt+261, Ć alt+262, ć alt+263, Ę alt+280, ę alt+281, Ł alt+321, ł alt+322, Ń alt+323, ń alt+324, Ó alt+0211, ó alt+162, Ś alt+346, ś alt+347, Ź alt+377, ź alt+378, Ż alt+379, ż alt+380

Who has codes for Romanian, Hungarian, Croatian, Czech, Slovak, Lithuanian, Latvian, Maltese- could they post the codes online? Thanks
In general, (for Word) assign keyboard shortcuts (insert symbol); for internet (email, etc) it seems hit and miss whether your recipient can display your characters. Does anyone know how to ensure the person you are sending mail can read (no boxes, etc.)

WONDERFUL site! When Spanish is NOT your primary language, and you need to translate or type a letter in Spanish, this site is a 'must have'!
