If you use GNU/Linux or a similar system on the desktop, there are
"dead keys" which you can type to put an accent on the following
character: AltGr and ; puts an acute over the next letter, for

Or you can use the Compose key to combine the next two characters.
Its location is configurable, but I think the default is often
Shift+AltGr, so Shift+AltGr then ' then e will produce an e-acute.

The Free and Open Source Software http://allchars.zwolnet.com/
adds this useful idea to Windows, mapping it to a control key.

Hope that helps,
