The SUSE default setup is actually much better than Microsoft Windows. I'm
attaching a sheet that shows how to get most of the special characters you
are ever going to need direct from the keyboard, assuming you are using the
default UTF-8. You need to view it using a Unicode(UTF-8)-enabled font, eg
GNU Unifont. This was for SUSE 9.0, I think, but it has changed only
minimally since.
