International Characters From Character Map and ALT Key Codes to Make Them

We are often asked how to make the letters Tolkien used in his writing that don't show up on our standard keyboards. Below is a list I made of these characters plus a few more I use, all from the Character Map. (Use control and the plus/minus keys to make the type larger/smaller if you have trouble viewing them.)

Just hold the ALT Key down while typing the four digit number and release it.

Warning: Make sure your Numbers Lock key lets the numeric pad on your keyboard work, else you may page back and lose everything you had previously typed. This happens to me when I [ALT]017 and arrgh, it back pages before I can ever get the fourth digit typed.

à = alt+0224 ..... è = alt+0232 ..... ì = alt+0236 ..... ò = alt+0242 ..... ù = alt+0249
À = alt+0192 ..... È = alt+0200 ..... Ì = alt+0204 ..... Ò = alt+0210 ..... Ù = alt=0217

á = alt+0225 ..... é = alt+0233 ..... í = alt+0237 ..... ó = alt+0243 ..... ú = alt+0250
Á = alt+0193 ..... É = alt+0201 ..... Í = alt+0205 ..... Ó = alt+0211 ..... Ú = alt+0218

â = alt+0226 ..... ê = alt+0234 ..... î = alt+0238 ..... ô = alt+0244 ..... û = alt+0251
 = alt+0194 ..... Ê = alt+0202 ..... Î = alt+0206 ..... Ô = alt+0212 ..... Û = alt+0219

ã = alt+0227 ..... ë = alt+0235 ..... ï = alt+0239 ..... õ = alt+0245 ..... ü = alt+0252
à = alt+0195 ..... Ë = alt+0203 ..... Ï = alt+0207 ..... Õ = alt+0213 ..... Ü = alt+0220

ä = alt+0228 ............................................... ö = alt+0246
Ä = alt+0196 ............................................... Ö = alt+0214

å = alt+0229
Å = alt+0197

- = alt+0151 ..... £ = alt+0163 ..... € = alt+0128 ..... ¢= alt+0162 ..... ± = alt+0177

© = alt+0169 ..... ® = alt+0174 ..... ° = alt+0176 ..... ™ = alt+0153

¹ = alt+0185 ..... ² = alt+0178 ..... ³ = alt+0179

¼ = alt+0188 ..... ½ = alt+0189 ..... ¾ = alt+0190

I have a Norwegian keyboard so I can write all those signs without the codes. :)
Well, all except € and down. ;)

You might try an international auction website. I'd imagine there's quite a secondary market for Norwegian keyboards and Norwegian flutes. :)
