Thank heavens!  Good going Peter!

So, how DID you get the résumé.................overhead punctuation to clarify from resume?  I just cut and pasted directly from Merriam-Webster Dictionary.

In Lion I highlight the “e”, press the option and U keys on the keyboard, backspace on the highlight and if it works OK the selection of spellings comes up. The overhead thingy is called an umlaut.

I looked this up on google since I don’t have Word or any word processing program on this particular computer: http://www.howtotype.net/symbol/lowercase_e_with_umlaut/

These pages call umlaut with the double dots and acute being the slanted overhead marks:

How To Type
How to type symbols, accents, special characters, and weird punctuation
umlaut lowercase a with umlaut ä
  lowercase e with umlaut ë
  lowercase i with umlaut ï
  lowercase o with umlaut ö
  lowercase u with umlaut ü
  lowercase y with umlaut ÿ
  uppercase A with umlaut Ä
  uppercase E with umlaut Ë
  uppercase I with umlaut Ï
  uppercase O with umlaut Ö
  uppercase U with umlaut Ü
  uppercase Y with umlaut ÿ

On Windows:
Hold down the ALT key and type 0235 on the keypad

On Mac OS:
Hold down the Option key and press u. Release, then press e

In HTML:
ë or ë

so let me see if I can do this since I need Windows: (I put numbers lock on so I could use the numbers key pad and I get:  ë 

How To Type
How to type symbols, accents, special characters, and weird punctuation
acute accents lowercase a with acute accent á
  lowercase e with acute accent é
  lowercase i with acute accent í
  lowercase o with acute accent ó
  lowercase u with acute accent ú
  lowercase y with acute accent ý
  uppercase A with acute accent Á
  uppercase E with acute accent É
  uppercase I with acute accent Í
  uppercase O with acute accent Ó
  uppercase U with acute accent Ú
  uppercase Y with acute accent Ý

How to type lowercase e with acute accent é http://www.howtotype.net/symbol/lowercase_e_with_acute_accent/

On Windows:
Hold down the ALT key and type 0233 on the keypad

On Mac OS:
Hold down the Option key and press e. Release, then press e

In HTML:
é or é

I think that’s actually a good thing to know. Apart from being a fun thing to use (which it really is) I’d say it would also help with making professional looking documents and presentations. It would just be nice if they could make it a bit easier to use somehow.

Anyway, it looks like I may have solved my problem with Microsoft for now at least. Of course I could be wrong.

I hope so Peter.  Making a good first impression with your work history etc. really IS important.

Most word processors will also have a ‘character map’ tucked in someplace, where you can find the umlauts, accents, and other fun things.

Just don’t go searching on a full Unicode character set.. there are a LOT of symbols in there.
