I send this email a week ago, no anwser yet, any body having a single 
clue is very welcome... And if you think of a better list to send the 
question, I'd be happy to do it.

Thanks in advance.


> Hi;

> accent, cedille... but not much symbols.
> In short:

> Even better would it be to have it recognised by the applemac input

> Any help  much welcomed.
