Portuguese accents can be generated in many applications using the ASCII code.
All you have to do when you need one is this:
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.
