Hey Don, Paul and everybody

Thanks for reminding me about it. You are right - in that archive, you
can still find the recent thread ´accented characters´, late January
this year. I have checked it out again - however, it does not contain
the answers I am looking for.

In general, this looks like an absolutely useful approach. So, I did
follow your instructions a few minutes ago. However, it did not work out
in this particular situation. The result is still the same: accented
characters only OpenOffice. In ALL the other applications, including
Thunderbird and Firefox, only the ´ basic´ key board is being used: in
spite of all my instructions via key board > regional and language > key
board. After putting in my instructions, I press at the APPLY button,
than at FILE > Quit. I do not know what I can do more to properly save
changed settings. Any other clue???
Hoping for other replies....
