ÐÁàLìÁTHOSE ÃÃLIVELYÄÄ "DEAD" KEYSƒ

WordPerfect 5.0 and 5.1 can breathe more life into a letter,
number, or symbol key on your computer's keyboard by endowing one
or more of them with "dead key" capabilities. A "dead key" is
one that doesn't seem to respond when pressed © not until the
next key is struck © then it jumps to life, combining the
functions of both or simply supplying a special character or
symbol. They are especially useful for putting an accent mark on
words such as naÀ5Àve, coÀ?Àperate, cÀ=Àte, cosÀ7À, or olÀ)À. Or they can
make use of WordPerfect's "Compose" function to convert unisex
"quotation marks" into the À ÀtypesetÀÀ variety or those used in
writing À?ÀdeutschÀÀ. Or supply any number of special symbols.
Dead keys can effectively add a third dimension to WordPerfect's
macro facility by allowing one to reserve Alt© and Ctrl©macros
for more elaborate functions.

Ô –2H
ÔÃÃÄÄEach dead key has the capability of supplying over a dozen
diacritical marks with only one keystroke and it can all be done
mnemonically. As opposed to other methods, such as remapping
keys, the keytops will continue to faithfully describe the
operation of each key. Dead key functions are not limited
diacritics or foreign languages: They are equally valuable to
mnemonically produce typographical, mathematical, and other
symbols © in lieu of or in addition to © foreign language
diacritics. A dead key stroke followed by c could render ÀÀ, for
example. Or d for a dashÀ"Àp for ÀÀ, r for ÀÀ: ÀÀ, ÀÀ, ÀÀ, ÀÀ, ÀÀ, ÀÀ, ÀÀ,
or any other of the myriad symbols in the "Compose" stable. Once
you learn the technique you will soon find other applications for
them to the extent you may not bother to remap keys again.

Languages using the Latin alphabet require a sprinkling of
diacritics: "Compose" can create all of them. And the easiest
way to supply them is via a WordPerfect keyboard layout that
makes maximum use of the dead©key technique. Remapping keys
using WordPerfect's remapping facility or creating Alt© and Ctrl©
macros for the diacritical marks one needs when typing in other
languages is fine © if you only need an accented word here or
Ô –2° Ôthere. But if you are producing any amount of ÃÃtextÄÄ in another
language neither of those methods can compare with the ease and
speed of using dead keys. The dead keys incorporated in
FRENCH.WPK have all the diacritics needed for French, German,
Italian and Spanish. You can easily modify it for any language
that uses Latin based characters. GERMAN.WPK and
PORT[uguese].WPK were developed in that way.

Copy FRENCH.WPK and the other .WPK files to the directory where
your WordPerfect .WPM and .WPK files are. Then from a
WordPerfect editing screen, go to the à ÃÄ ÄKeyboard Layout menu (Shift
Ô –2H& ÔF1). Select à ÃÃÃ5 © KÄ Äeyboard LayoutÄÄ and you will findÃÃÄÄÃà INTERNAT,
Ô –2' ÔFRENCHÄÄ, ÃÃGERMANÄÄ and ÃÃPORTÄÄ along with those that were provided
Ô –2Ø' Ôinitially by WordPer¬fect. Choose ÃÃEditÄÄ and ÃÃActionÄÄ to examine theÔØ'0* ( (°°Ô macros that create the dead keys. Any of them can be easily
personalized by simply substituting or adding letters or symbols.
For example you could have the left bracket key ([) produce a À À
(Pound Sterling symbol), or ÀÀ, or ÀÀ, or all three by adding $~$$~
and à Ã{LABEL}Ä Ä$$~À Àà Ã{RETURN}Ä Ä etc. to that dead©key macro.

In each of these WPKs the two keys assigned for dead©key
operation are the bracket keys and the symbols and characters
produced by first striking a dead key and then another are:

GERMAN.WPK is the same except that the functions of [ and { are
reversed: [ produces umlauts and ÀÀ, while { produces the acute
accents (even though they are not needed for German.) PORT.WPK
has macros added for ÀMÀ, ÀLÀ, ÀSÀ and ÀRÀ.

There are more accents available than any one language requires
but it really doesn't matter as you simply use those that do
apply. Add as many symbols as you wish; they and the foreign
language symbols will be there in the background waiting
patiently for you to press a dead key so they can jump to life.

The way it works is simple. Let's say you have been asked to
Ô –2È Ôwrite ÃÃVoilÀ!À, ya llegÀ;À la cigÀGÀeÀ9ÀaÄÄ. I don't know why anyone would
want to write that, except as an example to show the sequence of
Ô –2X Ôkeys to press: ÃÃVoilà Ã]Ä Äa, ya llegà Ã[Ä Äo la cigà Ã{Ä Äueà Ã[Ä ÄnaÄÄ. The dead keys
simply associate the right diacritic with the letter that
requires it. If you are writing Spanish and need to flip a
question mark or an exclaimer upside down it's just as easy: [?
becomes ÀÀ etc., giving you ÀÀDe veras? ÀÀSÀ1À, de veras!

Ô –2 ÔPut ÀÀ in ÃÃStraÀÀeÄÄ the same way, the ÀMÀ in ÃÃSÀMÀo PauloÄÄ, and maintain
Ô –2Ð Ôyour normal ÃÃvelocitÀ!ÀÄÄ while you are doing it. And you can À Àquote
meÀ
À, À?Àquote meÀÀ, or À
Àquote meÀ À as you prefer. Note, however,
that some of the "Compose" symbols will not show on the screen,
but most printers these days will print them correctly.
