  • C-x 8 is the prefix to insert 'strange' characters in emacs.
Not really easy to use as most of the chars take 2 keypresses more, but anyway, I don't have to enter ç or ñ that often.

The credits for this tip go to Toni.

I don't know if this has anything to do with your problem (I am not an emacs user, so there is probably more behind it...) but, anyway, this is what I am basically doing:

I am using the USA International (AltGr dead keys) keyboard layout, which allows me to type "as always" using the regular USA-layout, but also provides a quick access to all those non-ascii letters, i.e. AltGr + another key (ñ [n], á [a], ü [u], ß [s], ç [,], ...)

Quite neat!

I use a spanish keyboard, with english layout (better suited for programming IMO).

I didn't know about the USA international layout. Will try it soon.

I only want to be able to access these special letters to write mails or do some IRC.

Thanks for the tip!
