How to make Umlauts and special characters ( ie: á, ë, Æ, §, Ö, é, etc)

Got an idea, or did we do something that you really find disturbing? Come here and tell us about it and we'll respond.

Nilson's last posts in this thread were 3 years ago, I think, so it's likely the sites he linked to no longer exist. Is there anything you need clarified about making special characters? Some of the advice in this (old) thread may be out-dated now.

Dear Wilko, many thanks for your website address the links took me to several interesting places. I did find a list of codes on one of the forum pages and I copied and pasted it. ‡ got that by pressing ALT hold it down at the same time press and hold the + on the number pad whilde holding them both down, type in a four digit code on the number pad. Kewl no? ë

Suenote, you probably don't want to put the link like that, that could be construed as advertising, and if you look at the stickies in this forum, advertising is frowned upon. You could put it as a link in your sig though . . . I think. :)

Suenote, people don't usually use alt-key codes to create simple letters, because you can just press the relevant key on your keyboard for that :). The upper- and lower- case letters are all there in CharacterMap, near the top though.

If you want the codes, they are here: http://www.mkemp.com/references/alt_codes.asp

Suenote, if you are trying to type in Tengwar (which looks like this), you will need to do something more than just use the character map.

You will need to download a program that allows you to use a Tengwar font:

Dan Smith's TengScribe is popular, I hear.

You may want to ask this question in the Language Forum, actually....

In Sindarin, "thank you" is "hannon le". To transcribe that into Tengwar, look at this chart

#33 is h, #17 is n (a tilda above or below will double it), and number 27 is l.

I hope that is enough to get you started!

Elvish Languages

Postby Suenote52 » Sun Mar 13, 2005 10:31 am

Dear MithLuin, Many Many thanks for your advise and directions I will follow the hyper links. :hug:



Suenote52 :angel: 8`M5$1Y`V I just went to Dan Smiths Tengwar site and this is how my name looks in Tengwar!


3z[E h`N`M r6R`Û taU an Thank you very much in Tengwar

Where do you find "hannon le" as the Sindarin for Thank You I am confused I see #9 is "th" #33 is a and #17=n and #3 is k so basically you are just spelling out the word "thank you" in English :bang: :?

btw here is your name in Tengwar. :)

t3Tj`M5%

Is there no transcription site for Sindaring like the one for Tengwar???

Quite a useful thread, at least for me, so I though I'd bump it!

By the way, using a greek keyboard can give characters like ϊ ϋ § £³²¶¤¦°±½
while the english keyboard gives nothing using the same key combos. For ϋ or ϊ set to greek (alt-shift) and then hold down shift, press ;, release shift and press υ or ι accordingly. For ²³£§¶ press right alt and 2,3,4,5,6 respectively. Pressing right alt and 8,9,0,-,=,\ gives ¤,¦,°,±,½,¬ but no umlauts on english vowels :(

Pressing alt and + and then 0228 on the numeric pad gives ä (Yey, it works!) so character map is going to be used a lot from now on!
