In need to type the name Zoe with an umbulant symbol over the "e".   I use a mac so the windows code on the number pad doesn't apply.

I need to be able to type this in a document and also on a website.  So if there is a different way using html I need to know that too.

è        è        è        option+` e        Alt+0232        lowercase e, grave accent
é       é       é       option+e e       Alt+0233       lowercase e, acute accent
ê       ê       ê       option+i e       Alt+0234       lowercase e, circumflex accent
ë       ë       ë       option+u e       Alt+0235       lowercase e, umlaut

is that what you needed? the umlaut one?

I believe that is the way you would do it on Windows.  A Mac doesn't have an alt key.

Sorry... I submitted before I finished my comment.... This works on Windows but when I do the option+u e  on the mac it does the umlaut but doesn't type the e under it.

Hey Susan,

The way to read it, which I didn't clarify its to type

option and u together = umlaut

then

you type the e separately and it will place it underneath

I tried it on my mac and it works

let me know if that works for you

In advance of your second question, here's how to do it in HTML:

In HTML, to create umlaut accent marks type the & (ampersand symbol) then the letter (A, e, etc.), then the letters uml, then ; (semicolon) such as:
& euml; for ë
& Uuml; for Ü
(with no space after &)

I would first try copy and paste to see if that works, and if it doesn't, then i would try the instructions above.
