Adding accents to letters on a UK Keyboard

Grave accents can be added to characters by pressing [ ` ] (above the tab key) and pressing the another key: àÀèÈìÌòÒùÙỳỲẁẀ

Acute accents can be added by pressing [ Alt Gr ] (to the right of the spacebar) and pressing another key: áÁéÉíÍóÓúÚýÝẃẂ

Similar results can be achieved in some applications (e.g. Microsoft Word) with Control key combinations. Here are some examples:

[Ctrl] + [ ' ] then [ e ] --> é
[Ctrl] + [ ^ ] then [ e ] --> ê
[Ctrl] + [ , ] then [ c ] --> ç
[Ctrl] + [ : ] then [ i ] --> ï
[Ctrl] + [ & ] the [ o ]--> œ
[Ctrl] + [ ~ ] then [ n ] --> ñ
