Codes for Accented Letters

How To Insert a Letter with an Accent

The easiest way to insert an accented letter is to copy and paste the letter you need from the list below. If you're using a Microsoft Office program (e.g., Word or PowerPoint), you can also use the "Alt Code" method.

Here is an explanation of how to insert the "e acute" symbol (é).

(Method 1) Copy and paste the symbol.

Click on the accented letter you need from the list below. Press the "Copy" button, and then paste the symbol into your document. Here is the é symbol as an example:

é

Alt 0233

é

é

\00E9

é

U+00E9

Latin Small Letter E with Acute

(Method 2) Use the "Alt Code."

Every accented letter has an Alt Code. The Alt Code for "e acute" above is 233. If you have a keyboard with a numeric pad, you can use this method. Simply hold down the Alt key and type of the number. When you lift the Alt key, the symbol appears. ("Num Lock" must be on.)

More Methods

There are six more ways to get the accented letter you need. The other methods are a little more complicated and are typically used by programmers or graphic designers. Methods 3-8 are shown below the list of accented letters.

(Method 7) Use the Unicode (for various, e.g. Microsoft Office, JavaScript, Perl).

The Unicode for é is U+00E9. The important part is the hexadecimal number after the U+, which is used in various formats. For example, in Microsoft Office applications (e.g. Word, PowerPoint), do the following:
TypeOutput
E9
[Hold down Alt]
[Press x]
é
(The E9 turns into é. Note that you can omit any leading zeros.)
In JavaScript, the syntax is \uXXXX. So, our example would be \u00E9. (Note that the format is 4 hexadecimal characters.)
