Huh...

I was messing around trying to use the alt codes and I found out something I didn't know (thought I would share). When I hold the left alt key on my board and hit tab the Aero version of alt+tab, one with glass and thumbnail previews, comes up (which is normal). When I hold the right alt key and hit tab the basic version of alt+tab comes up (like the one from XP). I guess that will be useful in the future

Well, hoping this has nothing to do with the fact I am running a Dutch mui, I'll try to explain, although it's not easy, being limited by a textbox.

To make the ,

I press and hold the shift and press the ~ shortly and release the shift.
(my screen stays blank)

Then I press the n shortly.

Now appears the

To make the

While holding the shift, I press the ~ shortly and then the n shortly.
After the appears, I release the shift.

hope this works for you.

I have Dutch mui, but US International keyboard.

Good luck
