nuvi ( before alt-252 sequence )
nⁿuvi ( after )
nⁿvi ( after 2nd try )
nⁿvi ( using right-alt key )
nⁿvi ( with num-lock off )

hmmm, I don't see the magic.

ASCII Character

The simple answer is use ASCII code for the active ASCII characters, i.e. & and #. It's complicated enough to enter the ascii code to display the character; now to answer your question I need to enter the ascii code to display the ascii code required to display the character (got it??).

You're right, if you enter ü you will get ü
SO
you have to enter the ascii code for the two active characters (& and #) like so: ü

To break that down:
& gives the &
# gives the #
252; is the ascii number for the special character ü.

If you need more explanation, send me an email and I'll try to help you.

Do we need an interpreter or translator here? For those of us that don't understand Greek.

In short

In short, to get the dots over the "u" in nüvi, you have enter the ascii equivilent of the "ü". To display the the characters that does that, you have to put in the ascii equiv. of those characters. For instance,

If A+B=C
Then aa+bb=C

In other words, you would have to type in A+B to make a C and to make the A, you would have to type in aa. Does that make any sense, or did I just confuse you more.

ASCII Characters

Every time you type a letter, that letter has an ascii code. You can type in the letter or the ascii code for that letter and the letter will display.
(EXAMPLE: You can type the letter A or you can type in its ascii code of A to get the letter A)

EXCEPT: This does not hold true when the & and # characters are used together to designate the A's ascii code because the letter A will be displayed, not the code you want displayed. So you have to type in:
ascii code for & followed by the ascii code for # followed by 65;

The reason you have to enter ascii code for some characters is because there aren't any keys on the keyboard for certain characters, like ü.

See http://www.asciitable.com/ for ascii codes.

It's more about how to enter special characters when needed. Someone asked a question, I attempted to answer it. Isn't that one object of a forum? Since when does the requirement for thread need to be "everyone is interested in it"?

Hi brentrn,

It's fun, not having to jump through hoops, creating an umlaut on a Mac.

You probably already know this, but you can also add diacritical marks to the vowels (a, e, i, o, and u), using the same method. Just type Option and E, then type the vowel you need (á, é, í, ó, ú).

Aaaaah, life is good!!!

Now for something useful.

Great job!

Now for what I've been working up to, something that will benefit everyone on this site. We can do away with looong links to websites and use short ones.

Test #2:
Using html code (along with some ascii code):
1. Create an abbreviated 'clickable' link to garmin.com that only displays Garmin
2. Post the steps required to accomplish this.
AND
3. Using the info in this thread, post what was entered to display this link. Then everyone can post abbreviated clickable-links in the future (copy and paste, you know).

RT

PS. I'll post the answer tomorrow if (slim chance) no one comes up with it.
