If you need to type anything in a foreign language which has accents and other strange-looking characters, and you only have a standard English-language keyboard, your life used to be miserable. You used to have to do one of the following:

  a.. ignore the special characters
  b.. memorize unintuitive keyboard "shortcuts" such as alt+0128
  c.. go letter-hunting with the Character Map in Windows or Word
  d.. install Windows keyboard layouts which have the nasty side effect of interfering with your ability to type normal letters
  e.. buy and install third-party text input software

Now, through the miracles of Unicode and JavaScript, you can just navigate to this site, type whatever you need to type in a text box, and then paste it wherever you need it - into your word processor, e-mail message, etc. If you use Internet Explorer, you can type foreign characters by clicking a button or by pressing an intuitive keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+Letter) that doesn't require you to grow additional fingers and doesn't block normal letters.

Click the following links for the indicated languages.
