    at start menu | run, type charmap. (if it's not there, you'll need to use add/remove programs to install it.)

    use it to locate the alt+ keys for the letters you want to use (you can also copy the letters, but learning the alt code for frequently used characters is faster)

    in OE (or any doc) hold the alt key as you type the 4-digit code, which always begins with zero.

    Have you tried writing the text in Word, then pasting it in OE? When I go Create / Format / Rich text (HTML), this seems to work for special characters. Send yourself some mail and see what happens: also to Hotmail, etc.
