Tired of using ALT keys

For typing Spanish on sites that aren't as friendly as Tomisimo (with its pull-down accent menu), or for documents that require Spanish characters, I use this program, and then just cut and paste as needed. I put the link to the program on my browser toolbar, so it's always handy.

Thanks. Although I think that it's far easier to just setup a Spanish keyboard as detailed in Option 3 in this post: http://forums.tomisimo.org/showthread.php?t=234

Tomisimo: This is an internal link. Not spam.

I've got this set up on all my Windows and Ubuntu machines and I've assigned hotkeys so that I can easily switch from one keyboard to another as necessart. Works a treat.

That's what I was about to say, it's easier than been copying and pasting all time. If you are not in your machine, the website that tacuba shows is a good option.
