In MS Word, there is no problem making French accent marks. But I can't seem to make them in other circumstances, such as:
1) If I create a new folder on the desktop, I can't give it a title containing an accent mark.
2) In Netscape Gold, I can't change the name of a bookmark to a word that contains an accent mark.
Actually, I can make accent marks in the above circumstances, but only by changing the keyboard layout to French, in which case the keys on my keyboard no longer correspond to reality, because French has an azerty keyboard as opposed to our qwerty keyboard. This solution is too cumbersome.
There has to be some simple solution, because there must be thousands of foreign language teachers like me out there who need to know. If there is no such feature in Windows 95, is there such a feature in Windows NT?
