Portuguese accents and the Euro sign

Portuguese accents can be generated in many applications using the ASCII code.

All you have to do when you need one is this:

1601331310227
019301920194199
130136
144210
161
214
1621491470245
224227226229
163129
233154
135
128
0128

Now, just try typing this (remember to press the Alt key while you are typing the numbers in italics):
At130 133 pr162xima!
Did it work?
As you have noticed there aren't that many accents in Portuguese and they can be easily mastered. I've got them on a card strategically stuck on my monitor.

For anyone either with a Mac or interested in more symbols I find this site, Computing with Accents, Symbols & Foreign Scripts, absolutely invaluable.
