I know that alt 130 = é but I do not know how what sequence is used for the
Spanish upsaide down question mark and the exclamation. Does anyone know?

Thank you. I wasn't able to get it to work in Publisher, but I was able to
in Word and then copied and pasted it into my Publisher document.

The Insert | Symbol dialog is available in Publisher as well.

I'm trying to use the "insert symbol" to add a tilda over an n. When I click

Do not try to use the separate tilde symbol ~ to try to make combinations
like ñ. There are characters already in the font for these combinations.
Look farther down in the Insert > Symbol dialog.

For example, ñ is character number 241 when the character code dropdown is
set to "ASCII (decimal)". Also, there are default shortcuts for most of
these characters; for this one, press and release the Ctrl, Shift, and ~
keys together, then press the n key.

If you need to combine a tilde with some character for which there isn't an
existing combination, then you can use the "combining tilde" at Unicode
value 0303 (as a shortcut, type 0303 in the document and press Alt+X) or an
EQ field (http://sbarnhill.mvps.org/WordFAQs/Overbar.htm).

This is in Publisher. Many of these options seem to work in Word, but not in
Publisher - for instance Ctrl, Shift, and ~ doesn't get me an n with a
tilde. Also the insert symbol menu for the font I am using only has the
symbols seperately - there are the tildes and accent marks in the symbol menu
- but not over letters. I was hoping since the accents are there, there was a
way to insert them over the characters. Seems like I did it once before with
this font, I just can't remember how I did it.

The font you are using must be a very old or very cheap one, as all fonts
nowadays include at least the full ANSI character set, and most have Unicode
formatting. You should find ñ at character 0241 (ASCII) or 00F1 (Unicode) in
the Insert | Symbol dialog. Or you can use the Windows Character Map.

For Publisher questions, however, you should really post in the Publisher
newsgroup, as questions here are assumed to be about Word.

If you have a US keyboard, you don't need to remember all those codes.
The accents for all the Western European languages have keyboard
shortcuts built into Word. For an acute accent, type
Ctrl-' (apostrophe) followed by the letter (l.c. or capital); for a
grave, Ctrl-` (next to the 1 key); for a tilde, Ctrl-~ (shift-`); for
the circumflex, Ctrl-^ (shift-6); for the dieresis/umlaut, Ctrl-:
(colon); for the cedilla, Ctrl-, (comma). (And there are specific ones
for the other letters in French, German, and Scandinavian -- double-s,
ae, oe, slashed-o, crossed-d.)
