How to add an accent to a French name

For instance, the last name Dore. By placing an accent above the "e" gives
the correct pronunciation.

RE: How to add an accent to a French name

Depending on which way you want the accent to go, you can hold down the Ctrl
key and press the apostrophe key beside the ; semi-colon, or the ` next to
the figure 1 (UK keyboard) release the Ctrl and then press the letter. You
can also go the the Insert | Symbol menu and will find the letters there with
the accent already applied. There are also unicode numbers that work, and the
Character Map on the Start | Programs | Accessories | System Tools. Hope this
helps.
