One way of doing it, *if* you use KDE, is to go Control Center-Peripherals-
Keyboard. In Primary Layout, choose U.S. English w/ISO9995-3, then Apply. You
have to practice a bit to learn what does what *with* your keyboard. With
mine, I press the Window icon key; then ' (single quote) with a vowel: á é í
ó ú; with " (double quote): ä ë ï ö ü; with ^ (caret): â Ê; with , (comma): ç
Ç; with ~ (tilde): ñ Ñ. The Window icon key with *double* ! ? produce ¡ ¿.
*Many* characters are produced with Alt+ some key: æ Æ (Alt+a); þ Þ (Alt+p);
¢ (Alt+c); ð Ð (Alt+d); ß (Alt+s). Note: the Window icon key you press and
release, then press the other key(s); the Alt key you press and hold while
you press the other key(s).

If you go to K-Administration-Tools-Character Selector, you get a chart of
all the characters in the ASCII list from 033 to 255. You'll see that ©
(Alt+C) and ® (Alt+R) are there, but not (tm).
