AWA 2: The Dead KeyThe dead key is the key on a keyboard that doesn't really do anything on its own. You've probably used this key often if you've ever capitalized a word by using Caps Lock.
For most people, being able to type with an accent requires unicode. Now don't worry, unicode isn't something you have to install. Every Windows system has it by default. All you have to remember is the key sequence.
The following information was copy and pasted from the

If you don't know what a degree ( ° ) is you need to be shot by your elementary school teachers.
The inverted exclamation point ( ¡ ) is mostly used in spanish at the beginning of a sentence to show it should be read as an exclamation.
Same goes for the inverte

Now don't I rock just so very hard?
Verily hard, but what are all those accents? I don't recognize most of them.
Allow me to explain them.
The above list of vowels are topped with a diacritical mark aka an accent mark. Now accent marks are meant to denote a specific way to pronounce the vowel. The english language doesn't often use them, in fact english words like Déjà Vu or Cliché, are actually borrowed from France. Oh those accentual french.
We'll start with the ( ´ ) or acute accent. This is meant to have a sharp sound.

No one was really willing to hire him when he got out of jail and it was only by chance that Missus Mia came by him when he was trying to be a waiter at a crummy diner and he'd crushed his fifth cup trying to refill someone's coffee. When he was fired Missus Mia gave him work. He couldn't help much with investigating, but he could make coffee, he could fetch things when she needed them really fast, and he could open things for her that she needed opened. He could answer the phone pretty okay, and he could hold her umbrella for her when it was raining. Missus Mia was very pretty and she smiled at him a lot.

She jumped when she heard the latch of her office door clack open and quickly spun around to grab a thick notebook in case she needed something to hit the possible intruder over the head with. She waited anxiously, her soft brown eyes never lifting from the door as it creaked open. Once it swung the rest of the way and the light was turned on she saw Phoenix Wright standing there, the spikes of his hair drooping from the wet that was soaking through his big red scarf and pink sweater. She would have breathed a sigh of relief if she hadn't been so surprised. He'd only been working for her a week, and she certainly wasn't expecting any late night visits from
