Note to my German users:

If you are attempting to enter an'umlaut' sign into a character field
in my program, use this methodology on your PC keyboard:

To create an upper case 'oe',
hold down the 'ALT' key
Enter '153' on the numeric keypad

To create a lower case 'oe',
hold down the 'ALT' key
Enter '148' on the numeric keypad


Note that you will be holding down the 'ALT' key WHILE you enter the
digits '153'. Upon entering these digits, a 'umlaut' sign will appear
in your character field.

To print out the 'umlaut' character, however, your printer must be
capable of printing out the 'extended character set', or those ASCII
values above '123'.

This methodology will create ASCII character '153'.


To create an upper case 'ue',
hold down the 'ALT' key
Enter '154' on the numeric keypad

To create a lower case 'ue',
hold down the 'ALT' key
Enter '129' on the numeric keypad



To create an upper case 'ae',
hold down the 'ALT' key
Enter '142' on the numeric keypad

To create a lower case 'ae',
hold down the 'ALT' key
Enter '132' on the numeric keypad

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
