Details

Hello,
I like TB, and it would be nice to know if you happen to know why TB
doesn't accept WINDOWS (2000 PRO and maybe LATER) shortcut keys in order
to add  éá and such characters.

if you have the EN (english) and you're in Wordpad for example (also in
Word) {but not in Excel because Excel doesn't bother, the same with TB},
you can try pressing

CTRL + ' + e
or
CTRL + ' + e
or
CTRL + ` + e
or
CTRL + ` + e

the same with a and some others.

I found this (not sure):
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;269750

hopefully we can see this happening in TB someday soon. Cause this is an
important feature.

Thanks and sorry again to bother.
This is very important for some thousands of non-US/UK users in the
world :)

ps. rlk@trfenv.com is dead. so the website should be updated (concerning
shortcut keys)

hopefully this is not a dup, and the same feat. request goes for Firefox
