How do you make those funny lookin letters? Like "è". Had to copy and paste that. Been wondering how forever. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Edynol (talkcontr).

It's all a key combinaison of ALT + ### numbers from 128 (Ç) to 165 (Ñ) for the letters accepted for the character name and the game Chat: Ç ü é â ä à å ç ê ë è ï î ì Ä Å É æ Æ ô ö ò û ù ÿ Ö Ü ø £ Ø × ƒ á í ó ú ñ Ñ (from 128 to 165)
You should find a full tab on Wikipedia.

Also consider HTML entities[1][2][3] since they are much more browser and OS neutral. Also, ALT-key combinations are generally Windows-only. Mac OS X has much simpler and different alt/option-key combinations for accent and diacritical marks.[4] --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 1:59 PM PST 26 May 2009
Also, the character "×" (Mid-x) can't be used in character names. ColdReactive (talk) 18:44, April 8, 2013 (UTC)
